  • the role of fiscal policy as a stabilising tool and the effects of fiscal policy on inflation
  • implications of high inflation and rising debt financing costs for the sustainability of sovereign debt
  • risk-sharing arrangements and private/public balance sheet developments in monetary unions
  • fiscal policy implications of monetary policy normalisation
  • EMU institutional challenges and reform needs in European (fiscal) governance
  • the role of fiscal policy in the mitigation of climate change

However, the scope of the conference is wider than the topics listed above, and submissions on other related topics are also encouraged. The conference material will be published on the ECB’s website.
