Roundtable : Economic perspectives on the war in Ukraine | April 6


The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has created a new reality on the ground, in Europe and in the World. What will be the macroeconomic impact of the war for Europe? Can sanctions on Russia, or on its oligarchs, be effective? What type of aid does Ukraine need now, and later, when the time of reconstruction comes? How should we handle the issue of refugees?

Paris School of Economics organized a roundtable on the economic perspectives of the war in Ukraine on Wednesday, April 6th.
The roundtable gathered Ukrainian, Russian, French, Italian and German economists who reflected on their recent research to gain insights on the current events.
