Renowned experts offered their assessment of the EU financial crisis in an international public forum March 30, 2012. Scholars and practitioners debated the merits of the Euro Zone as well as the best way forward for European economies.

In this session, Valerie Bunce, government professor and director of the Cornell Institute for European Studies, moderates an interdisciplinary panel discussion on comparative perspectives of the Euro crisis with Jonathan Kirshner, Thomas Pepinsky, Robert Hockett and Richard Swedberg.
