#Debates ODG I Austerity, defence and green extractivism

La Fede c/ Tàpies 1-3, Barcelona

What lies behind the reform of the European Union's fiscal framework? Spain closed the EU presidency with an agreement of the Council of Economic and Finance Ministers: the reform of EU fiscal rules. This agreement could again entail cuts, although investments in the green and digital transition and in security and defence policies could be favoured. Is this the European Union we want? To address the implications of the reform of the EU fiscal framework in the context of the approaching elections, we will meet in the fourth session of the ODG debates with our colleague Nicola Scherer and Pere Ortega (Centre Delàs). Monday 5th february at 18h in La Fede
