The Eurozone crisis has forced the march towards a deeper integration prompting for a new fiscal treaty, the banking union, the European Stability Mechanism, the Juncker Plan, a project of a capital markets union. While these reforms constitute undeniable progress in completing the institutional underpinnings of the single currency, major challenges remain, such as resolving persistent current account imbalances, redressing weak long-term growth and preventing localized banking weaknesses from pushing back risk-sharing projects. In this context, the European Commission has unveiled proposals in December 2017. Chancellor Merkel and President Macron pledged to formulate a roadmap for a reform of the euro zone to be discussed at the next European Council in June 2018. Meanwhile, a group of 7 French and 7 German economists has released a series of proposals in January 2018 (dubbed the G14). This panel discussion will bring together prominent politists and economists, including Philippe Martin, a co-author of the G14 proposals, to discuss the issue.
