Overcoming the Pandemic:

the EU Quest for Growth and Jobs
October 26, 6.00 pm CET
Growth and jobs were already top priorities for the EU well before Covid-19. The socio-economic impact of the pandemic made them even more crucial and urged quick and strong policy responses. Indeed, unprecedented steps – including the Next Generation EU – have been taken by the EU so far, but they need to be fully implemented especially in the light of the recent rise of infections across Europe. Do these recent EU measures hint to a renewed and more solidaristic Europe? How to proceed with their full implementation? Would they suffice in the context of a second wave of infections? What to expect for growth and jobs in 2021?
