29 May -The Danish Presidency
The ongoing crisis in the Eurozone has posed particular challenges to the current Danish EU Presidency. Denmark, like Sweden, is not a member of the Euro Group and has therefore been excluded from some of the most important decision-making during the first half of 2012.
Moreover, the political clout in the EU now rests more with the European Council than with the Council Presidencies. Nevertheless, Council Presidencies continue to matter and during the initial period of the Danish Presidency a number of concrete results have indeed been achieved.
At this seminar, a mid-term review of the Danish Presidency will be presented and we will look ahead to the future challenges of the EU.
