    The Eurozone: Rebound or Requiem?

    A Transatlantic Conversation

    Friday, February 24, 2012

    Europe and the sovereign debt crisis have dominated headlines on both sides of the Atlantic for the past two years.  European leaders have held summit after summit discussing bailouts, firepower, haircuts, firewalls, the role of the European Central Bank, solidarity, national sovereignty, austerity, and even the nature of the EU itself.  European officials assure Washington they are charting a way out of the crisis; the Union will emerge stronger; and it is the United States that has the greater economic and political challenges.  Some in the United States openly question the European social model; whether the Euro will survive; and if there's still a future for the European project.  One way or another, the crisis is transforming Europe and the transatlantic relationship in a profound way. 

    We are pleased to host a lively discussion to help us understand both perspectives.  Please join Director General de Groot and Ambassador Kimmitt for a lively lunch discussion on the future of Europe and the transatlantic partnership. 

    This lunch discussion is co-hosted by the Royal Netherlands Embassy and CSIS.  

    Lunch will be served.  Please contact Terry Toland at to RSVP.

    The discussion will be ON the record.
