Where is the European Union Heading?
Where Should It Head? The Global Perspective.
February 9, 2006. Charlemagne Building. European Commission. Rue de la Loi, 170. Brussels, Belgium.
The State of the European Union is of high interest, relevance and even consternation these days. The aftermath of the “No” vote on of the Constitutional referendums in France and The Netherlands and European government & public opinion on Turkey’s accession to the EU have aroused discussion about Europe’s vision and its role in the world.
The idea is to let the others to speak about Europe. It would permit to all of us to know and understand better the perception of the European Union by others in the world. Are we a hope? Are we a model? Are perceptions positive, neutral or even negative? How is Europe today? How it will be tomorrow? The conference will offer a real perspective view of the becoming of Europe.
During this one day conference there will be high profile panel discussions among experts in these fields of high importance to Europe’s future strategy:
* Agriculture and its related trade Aspects.
* Enlargement of Europe and Neighboring Policy.
* Competition Policy.
* Migration, Justice and Security.
The speakers, organised in four panels of 5-6 will be officials of the EU institutions, politicians, diplomats, academics, businesspeople, think-tank representatives, journalists and members’ representatives of NGOs. Each of the 4 thematic speaker panels will be varied by geographic representation (Russia, ASEAN, Japan, China, India, Africa, Middle East, Latin America / MERCOSUR, Europe).
Conference participants will be officials of the EU institutions, politicians, diplomats, academics, students, businesspeople, think-tank representatives, journalists and members’ representatives of NGOs.
