Maastricht Dialogues

The Maastricht Dialogues is an EPC series exploring the macroeconomic outlook and the challenges of EU economic governance at a time of significant tests. The timing of the dialogues coincides with the anniversaries of the 1992 Maastricht Treaty and the 1997 Stability and Growth.

Indeed, this is a critical moment for frank and open dialogue on the EU’s economic challenges. From the ‘Recovery and Resilience Fund’ pandemic response to the trials of today’s wartime economy, the EU project is living a watershed moment calling for unprecedented policy responses. As highlighted by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in her 2022 State of the Union speech, the EU must now reinvent the “Maastricht spirit”, where stability and growth go hand in hand.

The European Policy Centre set up in June 2021 a Task force to input to the process and, in February 2022, released its first recommendations. The ‘Maastricht Dialogues’ foresee a mix of private and public events and publications. Through different formats, including closed-door roundtables, public talks, podcasts and Twitter Spaces, the EPC will follow and discuss the developments of the different aspects of the EU economic outlook and governance.
