EconPol Europe Annual Conference 2021: The State of Fiscal Resilience – How Prepared is Europe for Future Crises?
How resistant is Europe’s fiscal framework for crises yet to come? This question is at the heart of this year’s EconPolEurope’s Annual Conference to be held virtually on 13 and 14 October. EconPol Europe – The European Network for Economic and Fiscal Policy Research – is a unique collaboration of 14 policy-oriented university and non-university research institutes, including Oxford University’s Centre for Business Taxation. For the fifth time, the conference brings together expert network members from across Europe with politicians, policymakers, researchers, and journalists. The conference opens with a keynote address and is followed by a panel debate on Fiscal Policy for the Post-Covid-Era: US vs. EU with renowned experts Olivier Blanchard, Debora Revoltella, Claudia Sahm, and Maarten Verwey. The following sessions have an academic focus. Leading economists from the EconPol network present their latest research on such highly topical issues as climate policy and (fair) international taxation. Participation is free of charge. The sessions on international taxation will be chaired by Martin Simmler and John Vella, from the Centre for Business Taxation. Please visit the conference website for more details.
