With Brexit, the European elections and the new agenda for the European Union, 2019 was an eventful year for European politics.
In January, in collaboration with the European Policy Centre, the Schuman Centre organised a Policy Dialogue Roundtable on ‘Brexit: which way forward?’, which took place in Brussels.
The European Governance and Politics Programme organised two workshops on European politics. The first one took place in Brussels in March on ‘What Agenda for the Next European Parliament?’, where the EUI wanted to highlight the issues that were at the heart of the political agenda at that juncture. A number of ‘EP Elections Policy Papers’ on all of the major issues were produced and presented.
The second workshop, in October, ‘The Multiannual Financial Framework and EU Policies 2021-2027: The EU towards 2030’, aimed to assess which policy options could contribute to shape the EU policies for the next decade. The keynote speech was given by Pier Carlo Padoan.
