Recovering from the Crisis: INSIDE OR OUTSIDE THE EMU?

April 9th The Institute for International Relations and Political Science, Vilnius University, held a seminar on the international financial crisis, comparing the fates of countries inside and outside the euro-zone. Main speakers were Jˇn Baldvin Hannibalsson, former Minister of Finance and Foreign Affairs of Iceland, Dr. Ingrida SimonitÚ, former Minister of Finance of Lithuania and Dr. Baldur Thˇrhallsson, Head of the Center for Small States┤ Studies at the University of Iceland. Dr. Ramunas Vilpisauskas, Head of the institute introduced the speakers, but Mr. Bo Tillberg from the Nordic Council of Ministers┤ Office was moderator.
