The new strategy is a strong foundation that will help guide us in the conduct of monetary policy in the years to come
The aim of the ECB’s strategy review was to make sure our monetary policy strategy is fit for purpose, both today and in the future.
The strategy review covered all aspects of our monetary policy within the framework of our mandate, which is to maintain price stability.
We listened to opinions from across Europe, including those from citizens, academics, Members of the European Parliament and civil society organisations.
We have published several occasional papers which provided input for our recently concluded strategy review. Our occasional papers cover work on subjects related to our main tasks and functions and are aimed at a broad audience.Read the occasional papers
