Conference Room

Villa La Fonte

Mini-Conference organised jointly by the EUI Department of Economics, the Pierre Werner Chair Programme and EMU Lab.

This mini-conference is the first of a new series of initiatives, aimed at defining a forward-looking theoretical and empirical research agenda on the subject, and identifying new directions for modelling sovereign debt problems in a dialogue with policy analysts and policy makers.

The level of global debt after the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise in borrowing costs driven by the recent monetary tightening are generating mounting stress in sovereign debt markets and challenging the existing international financial architecture. Vis-à-vis these developments, the dominant paradigm in the literature is still shaped by the experience with debt crises in the 1980s through 2000.
