Europe 2035: Differentiated integration and the Conference on the future of Europe
The people of Europe are currently engaged in a wide discussion on the future of the Union and the direction of the integration process, with a view to propose reforms for common policies and institutions. Differentiation has been and will remain a necessity if the Europeans want to overcome stalemates in EU decision-making and improve the functioning of the European system. The central question is thus not whether there will be a differentiated Europe, but what it will or rather should look like.
The presentation of the paper Differentiated EUrope 2035: Elaboration and Evaluation of Five Potential Scenarios by Janis A. Emmanouilidis gives the occasion to discuss differentiated integration and the Conference on the Future of Europe.
