Date: Apr 16 - Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

Bruegel hosted the presentation of "The Governance Report 2013", a collaborative effort of scholars and practitioners from many parts of the world, anchored by a research and editorial team based at the Hertie School of Governance.

Authors Helmut K. Anheier and Lucia Quaglia presented findings from the report relating to financial and fiscal governance in Europe.

During the crisis, problems extended cross-border, whilst jurisdictions for most economic policy remained national. Technocratic solutions to the crisis proved inadequate mostly because they all entailed trade-offs and distributional implications, which have not been taken into sufficient account.

These trade-offs include liquidity versus moral hazard, accountability versus effectiveness, and domestic politics versus international commitments. Good governance is mainly about resolving these trade-offs.

The presentation was followed by a reflection from Daniel Mügge, University of Amsterdam, and by a wider discussion on governance challenges in the euro zone and possible ways forwards.

Beyond border control, migrant integration policies must be revived

Border control and burden-sharing of refugees is just one aspect of immigration policies. Greater financial inclusion and the tailoring of regulations to refugees' specific needs would benefit not only the refugees themselves, but also native citizens.

The exchange rate and inflation in the euro-area: words following facts

The reduced references in the speeches of the President and Vice-president of the ECB to exchange rate changes in assessing inflation developments correspond to a decreased pass-through from the exchange rate to inflation. So, as it should be, words have followed facts
