The meeting will be held in the Seminar Room, European Studies Centre, St Antony's College, Woodstock Road.


Since the economic crisis unfolded in 2008, the European Union (EU) economic governance framework has been profoundly transformed. The EU has adopted new tools, institutions and rules to tackle the crisis and be better prepared to combat the next one, if the case may be. In his talk, Professor Estella will approach EU economic governance phenomena from a legal perspective, using a method that mixes both economics and law.

Antonio Estella de Noriega is an Associate Professor of Administrative Law and Jean Monnet Professor “ad personam” of Law and European Economic Governance at Carlos III University, Madrid, Spain. He has recently published on the concept of “Law as Credibility”, on the issues related to a Member State’s potential exit from the Eurozone and on the new ECB banking supervisory role. His book, The Legal Foundations of European Economic Governance, which will be discussed in this talk, will be published by Cambridge University Press at the end of 2016.
