Speaker Event: How the European Union is Striving to Face the Financial Crisis

Event by IAG and EMPAC – French Political Figure Noelle Lenoir

A reception will follow this event, which is free and open to the public.

Noelle Lenoir, partner at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, Paris, and former French minister for Europe and justice on the French Constitutional Court, gives an expert insider’s account of how the European Union is striving to face the financial crisis.

She will give an overview of the new treaties and regulation aimed at reinforcing the governance of the eurozone and ensuring the proper functioning of the financial solidarity mechanisms, allowing bail outs in favour of member States in distress.

Lenoir insists on the key role of the ECB, whose interventions have resulted in a noticeable increase of competence of this true federal institution. She will also raise the question of a two-speed Europe, with an integrated Eurozone on the one hand and a less-integrated EU, including all 27 member States, on the other.
