The recent ECB-ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court struck like a lightning into the European political debate. The highest court of the largest EU member state challenges not only the ECB, but also the European Court of Justice, which it accuses of exceeding its competence. How will the clash between the German court and the European Court of Justice go on? How will the Commission react to this unprecedented provocation? Is the supremacy of EU law in danger? Will the ECB be able to continue exercising its mandate as an independent authority on monetary policy? Is the recent Franco-German proposition for a 500 billion recovery fund a response to the ruling?
In the CIFE Lunchtime Debate, three distinguished experts coming from three different academic disciplines debate about the consequences of the ruling:
- Jacqes Le Cacheaux, Professor of Economics at the Universté de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (UPPA)
- Ingolf Pernice, Professor of public law, international and European law at the Humboldt University of Berlin
- Wolfgang Wessels, Jean Monnet Chairholder at the Centre for Turkey and European Union Studies at the University of Cologne
The debate will take place on
Friday, 19 June 2020
12:30 - 14:0 h
