In this online debate, participants will discuss the objectives of the Conference on the Future of Europe, how to achieve them and whether it can give a new impetus to European integration. They will also discuss the lesson of the previous Convention on the Future of Europe, which proposed a constitutional treaty that was ultimately defeated in referendums in France and the Netherlands.
The event will be moderated by Alberto Alemanno (Jean Monnet Professor of European Union Law & Policy at HEC Paris). Speakers include:
- Giuliano Amato (former Prime Minister of Italy);
- Hélène Landemore (Associate Professor of Political Science, with Tenure at Yale University);
- Thu Nguyen (Policy Fellow for EU Institutions and Democracy at the Jacques Delors Centre at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin).
