The European Central Bank - a work in progress?

May 26: Ralph Atkins, FT Frankfurt bureau chief, assesses the European Central Bank just before its tenth anniversary - past, present and future.

And how will it weather the economic storms of the next ten years? Contributors include Otmar Issing, one of the ECB's economic architects, and José Manuel González-Páramo, ECB executive board member.
