On November 26, 2021, I spoke on a panel during the European Central Bank’s (ECB) Legal Conference 2021 on my forthcoming research.
The panel, titled “Relationship between Law and Markets,” also featured Katharina Pistor, Edwin B. Parker Professor of Comparative Law at Columbia Law School; Marco Dani, Associate Professor at the University of Trento; and Barbara Balke, Director General and General Counsel at the European Investment Bank.
In my presentation—“Reconsidering the EU’s Economic Ideas on Market and Law: Toward greater effectiveness, accountability, and democracy”—I discussed the resilience of ordo-liberal and neoliberal ideas with regard to Eurozone governance over time (Law), the impact of such ideas on European economies (Markets) and the deleterious economic, social, and political consequences related to the populist democratic backlash. I also spoke about the changes resulting from the COVID-19 response, suggesting some pathways forward for the decentralization and democratization of the EU’s economic governance that could ensure greater legitimacy in terms of performance, procedures, and democracy.
