Europe’s future: Peace, prosperity and democracy in an uncertain global environment

10 November 2017

The European Union (EU) has left the worst of the crisis behind it. For the first time in years, there is a new sense of optimism, and a shared sense among EU policymakers and politicians at EU and national level that now is the time to think about the future of the European integration project and make it more resilient for future shocks, which are bound to come. Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times Martin Wolf has followed the EU closely during the past decades. In this sixty-minute briefing, he talked about some of the global challenges the EU will be facing in the near to far future, and how it can equip itself to deal with those.
