8 December 2017: Register for Roundtable on “Debating the EU’s Future: Do we need institutional reforms? Will we get them?”

On 8 December 2017, CERiM will be holding a roundtable debate on “Debating the EU’s Future: Do we need institutional reforms? Will we get them?". The future of the EU is uncertain. Given numerous developments such as the refugee crisis and Brexit, all in the past decade, these developments have challenged the EU's capacity and ability to deal with them and have left Europeans and the world in doubt and anxious about the next steps. Join us for a thought-provoking debate on how the EU can move forward in these times of crises.

The event is organised following the end of the Europe Calling initiative celebrating 25 years of the Maastricht Treaty.

The roundtable is chaired by Thomas Christiansen and the speakers are:

•    Deirdre Curtin, Professor of EU Law, European University Institute
•    Edward Best, Head of Unit, European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA)
•    Graham Smith, Member of Cabinet of the European Ombudsman
•    Wolfgang Wessels, Director of the Centre for Turkey and European Union Studies (CETEUS), University of Cologne

Event Timing: 10:15 - 13:00

Event Address: C-1.03 (Colloquium room 1), Tongersestraat 53 (School of Business and Economics), Maastricht

Registration is based upon a first-come, first-served basis: registration form
