The comprehensive assessment, the ECBs´ new role and limits of a common supervision in the EU

EU Institutions & Governance

Date: Oct 30 - Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

We are happy to announce the conference “The Comprehensive Assessement, the New Supervisory Role of the European Central Bank and Limits of a Common Supervision in the EU”, to be held on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at Auditorium Friedrichstrasse in Berlin.

The conference topic relates to the new supervisory architecture in the Euro area. The European Central Bank will take over the direct supervision of big European banks beginning November and has been conducting an asset quality review in combination with stresstests. The outcome of the Comprehensive Assessment will have far reaching implications, as regards financial stability, credibility of the ECB, economic recovery in EU member states as well as on burden sharing. We will also shed ligth on limits of a common supervision in the EU, tackling political issues and constraints in shaping a workable Banking Union. We will end with a panel on the future of the financial system and unfinished reforms debating also constituents of a fair financial order in the EU.

We will discuss these topics intensely, with a public interest and scientific stance. In the discussions we will bring together regulators, politicians, academics and industry experts. We think that having a public debate on these issues is very reasonable and also necessary.
