ECIPE Seminar: Reforming Europe – Building Political Leadership for Successful Reforms

January 25 2018
Venue: ECIPE Office, Avenue des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Constantine Arvanitopoulos, Nils Karlson
Time: 10:30

How to achieve lasting reforms in advanced democracies.

What is the recipe for successful economic and institutional reforms – reforms that raise welfare and improve the way government works?

Recent years have seen many examples of reform initiatives in Europe and the Western world that, for a variety of reasons, got stuck. Jean-Claude Juncker, while the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, famously said about economic reforms that “we all know what to do, but we don’t know how to get re-elected once we have done it.”

At the same time, many countries have over the past decades achieved a great amount of positive change in their economy and policy. What has been the secret behind their successes? What explains that some advanced countries have changed their direction fundamentally and had a sequence of reforms that has raised competitiveness and efficiency – while other advanced economies struggle to get the basics right?

Please join us for a seminar about how modern and reform-minded statecraft in Europe can be improved.
