Sala Triaria (Villa Schifanoia) and Zoom

This event, organised in the context of the EUI Interdisciplinary Research Cluster on 'Finance and society', hosts a presentation by Nicolas Véron (Bruegel).

The deterioration of the European and global geopolitical environment in recent years raises questions about related risks in financial systems. Is the EU appropriately prepared to address these, or should new policy initiatives be considered?

Nicolas Véron is a senior fellow at the thinktank Bruegel in Brussels, which he co-founded in 2002–05, and at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington DC, which he joined in 2009. In 2012, he was included in the global 50 Most Influential list of Bloomberg Markets Magazine.

Véron has authored or co-authored numerous policy papers that include banking supervision and crisis management, financial reporting, the Eurozone policy framework, and economic nationalism. He has testified repeatedly in front of committees of the European Parliament, national parliaments in several EU member states, and US Congress. His publications also include Smoke & Mirrors, Inc.: Accounting for Capitalism, a book on accounting standards and practices (Cornell University Press, 2006), and several books in French.

His prior experience includes working for Saint-Gobain in Berlin and Rothschilds in Paris in the early 1990s; economic aide to the Prefect in Lille (1995-97); corporate adviser to France’s Labour Minister (1997-2000); and chief financial officer of MultiMania / Lycos France, a publicly-listed online media company (2000-2002). From 2002 to 2009 he also operated an independent Paris-based financial consultancy.
