The Future of the EU – National Perspectives

The seminar was held on 21 September 2018.

The future of Europe has in recent years been increasingly discussed at EU level, highlighting member states' diverse views regarding the direction and speed of European integration. But what issues are at the core of the national debates in European countries when the future of the EU is discussed? How can we better understand the political dynamics within the different EU member states?

In the recently published book "The future of Europe – Views from the capitals", authors from 32 European countries convey national views on the development of the EU.

At this SIEPS seminar, Michael Kaeding, one of the book's editors, gives an overview of the national perspectives on the future of European cooperation. In addition, the seminar will devote special attention to the debates in the Nordic states with contributions from leading researchers Juha Jokela and Marlene Wind.
