Upcoming workshop on "Italy and the European Investment Bank"

Posted on 09 December 2020

An international academic workshop on “Italy and the European Investment Bank” will take place on Zoom on 10 December 2020.

The workshop is organised by the Institute of Political Science and the Robert Schuman Initiative, University of Luxembourg, in cooperation with the Department of Political Science, Law and International Studies of the University of Padova.

The workshop seeks to analyse the role and policy of the European Investment Bank (EIB) in Italy, and constitutes the second leg of the Conference “Analysing the European Investment Bank: interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the past, present and future of the world’s biggest lender”, held at the University of Luxembourg on 10 and 11 July 2019.

Several speakers will present their work and discuss different approaches throughout the workshop. Among them, Antonio Bonatesta will present his historical analysis on the European Investment Bank and its role in the economic development of Italy, based on his previous STAREBEI grant project “The European Investment Bank and the 'Mezzogiorno' in the context of regional development (1958-1973)”.

The EIB is the financial institution of the European Union created by the Treaties of Rome (1957) to contribute to regional development and economic cohesion. Its historical archives were deposited at the HAEU under the terms of a convention signed on the 1st of July 2005 with then EIB vice-president Gerlando Genuardi.
