The Role of Rules, Fiscal Boards and Other Policy Innovations
The workshop is intended to bring together academics and policy makers to discuss elements of common fiscal policy in the Eurozone. The specific focus is on the role of fiscal institutions – such as fiscal rules and fiscal boards - in sustainable fiscal governance in the Eurozone.
The workshop is part of a research project "European Network on Better Institutions" with the aim to carry out applied research on questions related to institutional reforms in Europe. This three-year project- funded by SEEK (Strengthening Efficiency and Competitiveness in the European Knowledge Economies) will also cover reforms related to fiscal stabilization mechanisms and macro-prudential regulation.
