Co-funded by the European Union
On Friday the 26th June 2015 two Round Table discussions took place at the EU House in Nicosia entitled ‘New economic governance in the Euro area – scope and limitations’ and ‘Legal aspects of the European Banking Union’. They were organised by the Jean Monnet Module running at the School of Law of UCLan Cyprus and were co-funded by the European Union, in the field of the Law of EU Economic and Financial Governance in the EU (FECoGov). The discussions were co-organised with the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus and the European Parliament Information Office in Cyprus.
A number of eminent experts were invited to participate in the discussion by Dr. Stéphanie Laulhé Shaelou, Associate Professor, School of Law, UCLan Cyprus and Jean Monnet Module Leader and Academic Coordinator. These included Prof. Fabian Amtenbrink, Erasmus Rotterdam University; Dr. Phoebus Athanassiou, University of Frankfurt; Dr. Dariusz Adamski, University of Wroclaw; Prof. Takis Tridimas, King’s College London; Mr George Moschovis, European Commission, DG ECFIN; Former Judge George Arestis; Former Judge Andreas Paschalides; Mr Pantelis Christofides and Mr Tasos Coucounis. A number of pre-selected participants had the opportunity to take part in the Round Table discussions and exchange views and opinion with the experts.
The topics included current issues and challenges of economic governance in the Euro area, the renewed role of the EU institutions and the Troika, the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the Gauweiler/OMT case and the viability of an ordered exit from the Euro area and other areas on the European Banking Union and the Capital Markets Union including a discussion of crisis-related instruments and the new role of the ECB in prudential supervision. The Round Table discussion successfully concluded with a consideration of the macro-economic adjustment programme for Cyprus and the bail-in provisions.
