Risk Sharing in the Euro Area

Interdisciplinary and International Research Project Funded by the Volkswagenstiftung

Risk-sharing mechanisms are an important part of the European integration process. There have been wide-ranging debates about the desirable extent of risk sharing in the Euro Area and appropriate institutional reforms such as the call for an EU finance minister or the creation of a European Monetary Fund. Against this background, it is the objective of this research project to develop a conceptual framework that permits a comprehensive analysis of risk sharing in the Euro Area.

Research questions which will be addressed by the participating researchers concern three important issues of risk sharing: analytical aspects, actual policies and the institutional environment, and normative questions. These research questions are arranged within three domains: financial markets, fiscal policy and migration.
