On 7 February, Carlos Maravall Rodríguez participated as a lecturer in the European Jean Monnet Project EU-ECO-FIN at the University of León (ULE), directed by Professor Mayte Tascón. The conference was entitled 'European Financial System: cause, consequence or reflection of the integration (or lack of integration) of the European Union and its policies', and explained the role of the European financial system in the integration of the states that make up the European Union.
This long process of integration began with the creation of an internal market, continued with the regulation of external relations, then evolved towards monetary policy with the introduction of the euro, and has continued with the integration of financial systems, leaving fiscal union for the future.
The conference was followed by a round table with the participation of three members of the European project, Teyo Vallelado, Cristina Gutiérrez and Javier Castaño, as well as the 24 on-site and 10 online students of the courses and other members of the project attending the event. The round table discussed the advantages and disadvantages of the stages of integration already advanced and of the eventual fiscal union.
This activity took place in the Faculty of Education and is part of the CFIE Course and the University Extension Course "New framework of sustainable development in the EU for the teaching of economics" which began on 20 October and has been running for several weeks until yesterday, Thursday, the closing day.
Carlos Maravall holds a PhD in Economics from New York University and is currently an official of the European Commission. Within the European institutions and bodies, he has worked in the Single Bank Resolution Board, the Directorates General for Financial Regulation (FISMA), Economy and Finance (ECFIN), the General Secretariat (SG), and Energy (ENER).
