Keynote: Schuldfragen in der europäischen Schuldenkrise

"Europas Gerechtigkeit" - Achte Internationale Jahreskonferenz des Exzellenzclusters "Die Herausbildung normativer Ordnungen"

Donnerstag, 29. November 2015, 18.00 bis  20.00 Uhr

Prof. Dr. Claus Offe (Professor of Political Science at Humboldt University, Berlin)

The EU has adopted its common currency without providing an institutional framework that would have been needed to absorb and buffer the damages the Euro has predictably caused. After this ‘naked‘ monetary regime has created a deep division between a core of Euro-winners and a periphery of losers, a vehement exchange of mutual accusations has set in. The lecture explores the discursive patterns and normative arguments that are being invoked in this ‘blame  game‘. (The lecture will be in English, but the title remains in German because the shared root of the German words for guilt (Schuld) and debt (Schulden) mean that it cannot be translated satisfactorily into English.)
