Europe is facing a non-performing loan (NPL) crisis. Bringing together over 100 senior experts from the EU institutions, national authorities and key market participants, a recent Bruegel conference discussed current options and novel approaches.
The event was held mainly under the Chatham House rule. Thus what follows is a brief, personal and necessarily partial summary. But we nonetheless hope it provides a sense of what has once again become a very lively – and increasingly urgent – policy debate.
