Shifting Europe from Austerity to Growth: A Proposed Investment Programme for 2012-2015

The meeting will discuss concrete proposals (with appropriate figures and estimates) to significantly increase lending by the European Investment Bank as well as other measures (notably the use of structural funds and project bonds), so as to meaningfully advance the European Union growth agenda. Indeed, modelling work included in the paper shows that highly needed jobs, especially for the youth, could be created in the European Union with the proposed measures.

Discussions will starte by a presentation of the paper made by Prof. Stephany Griffith-Jones, Columbia University (New York) and FEPS consultant, Dr Matthias Kollatz-Ahnen, former Senior Vice-President of the European Investment Bank and Lars Andersen, Director of the European Council of the Labour Movement (Denmark).

Taking place in the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Employment, the event is co-organised by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the Fondation Jean Jaurès in collaboration with the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University (New York) and the European Council of the Labour Movement (Denmark).
