The Coronavirus pandemic, and other structural changes in our economies and societies, have transformed the way central banks function, and how they need to communicate. In times of economic crisis, political uncertainty, ‘infodemics' and disruptive technological change, central banks face the core challenge of projecting stability and (re)building trust. In his lecture, Glöckler will offer insights into how the European Central Bank navigates this demanding policy and communications environment. GABRIEL GLÖCKLER
