The Future of Europe – old values, new visions?
17 April 2018, 7.00-9.30 p.m.
Hildebrandstraße 5, 10785 Berlin
Over the past five years the EU and its member states have faced an unparalleled set of challenges. The Eurozone and refugee crises have put the European system to the test. The rise of populist parties that reject European values suggests that the next few years will represent a turning point for the future of Europe and EU reform. Between a revamped Franco-German alliance, an unstable Italy, Brexit and the return of the Irish question, and an illiberal drift across Central and Eastern Europe, the EU must step up to the challenge. Which reforms are needed to relaunch the Union’s political action and regain the trust of its citizens? How can member states go beyond the current North-South, East-West divisions and forge a vision for a renewed EU cooperation?
