Please note that the time of the event refers to "Central European Time" (CET).
This webinar is organised by the University of Victoria, Canada, and the European Social Observatory (OSE), Brussels. It will address changes to the European Semester caused by the COVID-19 crisis and the implications for social and regional actors in the context of the implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Facility.
The event will present results from recent research and provide a state-of-the-art analysis of ten years of macro-economic policy coordination with a focus on three questions:
First, to what extent is the European Semester successfully implemented in the domestic arena?
Second, to what extent do domestic institutions and stakeholders play a crucial role in the success (or lack thereof) of the European Semester?
Third, what lessons can we learn from past economic policy coordination for the challenges ahead?
Statements and presentations will be followed by a debate with the audience.
