Joined seminar with ELIAMEP - European Integration
6 July 2014
Between 3-6 July 2014 the EPC co-organised together with the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) the 11th ELIAMEP European Seminar.
The basic theme of the interdisciplinary seminar was: ‘Integration or Disintegration? Which way forward for Europe?’. In the beginning of a new EU institutional-political cycle (2014-2019), the international participants of the 11th ELIAMEP European Seminar discussed the outcome and potential implications of the May 2014 European Parliament elections, the 'new balance of power' within the EU, the centrifugal forces that have been gaining strength between and within countries, the changing geopolitical context in Europe's neighbourhood and beyond, the different dimensions of the 'euro area crisis', as well as the perspectives for economic reform and the challenges to the social contract at national and European level. In the final session, participants explored the potentials for a 'new grand bargain' between EU member states and between the Union and its citizens, a subject closely related to the New Pact for Europe project conducted by the EPC and a consortium of European foundations.Programme European Seminar 2014
