Discussion Summary: Over three years after the onset of the European debt crisis, which has thrown the fate of the EU’s single currency – the Euro – and the project of European Union integration more generally into question, leading commentators from the European Union come together at NYU to discuss the current state of affairs in the EU. Giuliano Amato, former Prime Minister of Italy and a member of the Global Law Faculty at NYU, Savvas Papasavvas, Judge of the General Court of the European Union, and Kalypso Nicolaidis, Professor and Director of the European Studies Center at Oxford University and Straus Fellow at NYU, spoke on a panel moderated by Gráinne de Búrca, Florence Ellinwood Allen Professor, NYU School of Law, on Europe’s Crisis. What progress has the EU made in addressing the causes and consequences of the banking and the debt crisis? What are the main challenges it still faces and how can they be tackled? What is the likely future of the EU project? These and other questions confronting the EU were addressed by our panel of experts.
