European Research Centre for Economic and Financial Governance (EURO-CEFG)
The European economic and financial crisis has led to considerable turmoil, but has also resulted in a complex arsenal of measures, reforms and legislation at EU and national levels. How effective and future-oriented are they, and is there sufficient coherence between all relevant fields, such as economics, politics, law, and ethics?
The European Research Centre for Economic and Financial Governance (EURO-CEFG) is building up an international multidisciplinary research network, not only to understand the economic crisis, but also to act as a think tank for contributing to sustainable solutions.
