Leadership in times of crisis

Speech by Christine Lagarde, President of the ECB, at Manager Magazin's Top100 women in German Business, Hamburg, 27 April 2022

Russia's brutal war against Ukraine marks a dark moment for Europe. Events that we thought were consigned to history have once again become a deeply troubling reality on our continent.

The invasion of Ukraine is first and foremost a human tragedy. Lives and livelihoods have been lost. Cities have been levelled. And millions of Ukrainians are now seeking refuge from the violence that has engulfed their nation.

Our world has changed dramatically in just two short months. Indeed, the war has heightened the sense that our world is in constant flux.

Some say that we live in an age of "permacrisis", where we move seamlessly from one emergency to the next.
