Successful Roundtable Discussion on the EU's future
On 8 December, CERiM organised a roundtable discussion on 'Debating the EU’s Future: Do we need institutional reforms? Will we get them?'. Edward Best (EIPA), Deirdre Curtin (EUI), Graham Smith (Member of the Cabinet of the European Ombudsman) and Wolfgang Wessels (University of Cologne) shared their thoughts on current reform proposals and recent developments in the European integration process including, among others, the 'double hat' proposal for the Presidents of the European Commission and the European Council, the recent initiatives of enhanced cooperation and the issue of democratic representation. These issues gave rise to a lively debate with all attendees.
