This seminar offers a diagnosis of the current European debt crisis that traces its origins to inherent flaws in the legal and institutional design of the Eurozone. Questions to be addressed include:

- Is the European Monetary Union responsible for the current Eurozone crisis?

- What role have core nations such as Germany and France played in the crisis, compared to peripheral nations such as Spain and Greece?

- What are the political and economic implications of austerity?

- What policies should Europe adopt to resolve this crisis?
