Alongside the 2015 IMF Spring Meetings in Washington, this event will explore the role of the IMF in the Eurocrisis.
Experts will explore the following questions:
- Given the ongoing negotiations over further loans for Greece, how can the IMF encourage reforms in light of challenging domestic political developments?
- Going forward, how can the IMF revise its operational role in the EU?
- What institutional arrangements might best enable the IMF to resolve future debt crises?
- Can EU-IMF cooperation as reflected under the Troika serve as a template for future cooperation between global and regional financial institutions?
CIGI Senior Fellow Miranda Xafa will present at the event.
CIGI Senior Fellow Paul Blustein will attend as a discussant.
