Democracy and the Eurozone’s Fiscal Pact : Are They Compatible?

16th April 2012

National Liberal Club, Whitehall Place London SW1A 2HE

Throughout this year, the Federal Trust is jointly organising a series of conferences on European economic themes together with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the Global Policy Institute.
In the second of these conferences considered the implications of the recently agreed Fiscal Pact for democracy in Europe. Critics of the Pact have claimed that it is essentially anti-democratic in character, while the Pact’s supporters argue that the democratic rights of European voters are protected at both the national and European level. This controversy featured at the centre of our conference on 16th April.

Speakers :

Professor Vernon Bogdanor, Research Professor, King’s College London

Andreas Krautscheid, Association of German Banks (Bundesverband deutscher Banken)

Brendan Donnelly, Director of the Federal Trust

John Stevens, former MEP, will chair the discussion.
