Gunnar Hökmark, a leading figure in the ECON Committee, will share his experience and insights as well as his reflections on the past years of prudential regulation in the EU from a policymakers’perspective. Navigating the interplay of global rules, Brussels politics, intergovernmental as well as inter-institutional politics in trilogues has been and still is a major challenge for everybody involved.

Has the right balance been struck? What still needs to be done? What lessons are to be learnt for future regulatory mammoth projects of a similar nature?

Join the debate and share your thoughts in a Chatham House rule setting.
