A conference with Pierre Moscovici, former member of the European Council, of the European Parliament and of the European Commission.

The EU has always been a story of enlargements and attractiveness. For the first time, it has lost a member state, and one of the most important ones. This is not an anecdote, or business as usual, but a drama.

For some, it is an example to follow, that would lead to the victory of nationalism and populism. For others, it can be an opportunity for a stronger integration at 27.

In any case, it gives rise to a complicated period, with very tough negotiations ahead, and raises several major challenges for the EU in the years to come.

« I would like to reflect on these challenges from my long experience as a former member of all the European institutions – Council, Parliament, Commission – over the last 25 years, with enthusiasm as well as realism ». Pierre Moscovici

Moderation by Olivier Rozenberg, Associate Professor at the Centre for European Studies & Comparative Politics, Sciences Po.

Conference held in English.
