A Finnish Perspective
Professor Esko Antola was an early advocate of Finnish membership in the European Union and has served in various advisory positions for the Finnish government. He is presently the Jean Monnet Professor on European Institutions at the University of Turku, Finland. His research focuses on the institutional structure and the emerging foreign and security policies of EU.
Professor Antola earned his doctorate from the University of Turku in 1980 and has written extensively on the effect of EU institutional reforms on a small member state. He will be speaking on the institutional structure of the European Monetary Union and its effects on European monetary policy.
