Reset Europe: 60 years of European integration

Reset Europe: 60 years of European integration

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 22nd Jan 2018

In recent years, Europe has been hit by a series of crises extending to its economy, migration, BREXIT and the situation in Catalonia. All of which point to the need to reform Europe.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron has already voiced his desire for a closer integration amongst countries of the Eurozone.

So, after 60 years of European integration, which direction will Europe go?

Richard Youngs, from Carnegie Europe will present his new book Europe Reset and launch the roundtable discussion with proposals on how to make the union more flexible and more accountable. In his view, citizens should play a greater role in European decision-making. There should be radically more flexibility in the process of integration and Europe needs to take a new, more coherent, approach to questions of defence and security.
