Expert Statement

Fabian Amtenbrink has published/presented extensively on legal issues of European (economic) integration, including on the European response to the recent European debt crisis (Stability and Growth Pact, ECB monetary policy response, (EU) financial assistance, Eurobonds, democratic legitimacy of crisis measures). The constant flow of proposals to address the severe economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis and the call for a robust and lasting European engagement raise numerous questions linked to the scope and limits of EU law in accommodating specific crisis-response measures.
