Event description

Description

In 2019, leaders and representatives from all EU countries will be negotiating the framework for the next seven-year budget of the European Union, sometimes referred to as ‘the future of Europe in numbers’. This ‘Multiannual Financial Framework’ reflects the priorities of the EU and sets the parameters for which around €1 trillion of EU money will be spent over the seven-year period from 2021-2027.

On 28 February 2019, the IIEA is hosting an event in Limerick City with a panel of leading economists and politicians, who will discuss how this money would be best allocated, and whether the EU budget should be increased to include new policy priorities, or stay at its current level. The discussion will touch on many important parts of the European Union, from agriculture to defence, and members of the audience will have a chance to ask questions to the panel and share their opinions.

Taking part in this panel discussion will be: Timmy Dooley TD, Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Communications, the Environment and Natural Resources; Deirdre Clune MEP, Fine Gael MEP for the South Constituency; Dr Stephen Kinsella, Associate Professor of Economics at UL & Columnist with the Sunday Business Post; and Dr Catriona Cahill, Economist with the Limerick Chamber of Commerce.

This event is free and open to the public as part of the IIEA's Future of the EU27 project, which is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
