Theme: At a challenging time of its existence, the chessboard of European Union politics is changing with a string of new actors selected to the top leadership positions of the EU. When Jean-Claude Juncker takes up his post as the next President of the European Commission, he will start working with a new team of Commissioners. Joining the leadership team of the European Union will be another two individuals, namely the new President of the European Council and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. These candidates will have to be approved by the European Parliament before they begin their work on 1 November 2014 –a parliament that now consists of new untested constellations of political parties after the EP elections in May. All these internal changes to the governance of the European Union take place against a backdrop of serious security challenges in the Union’s eastern and southern neighborhood and the continuing festering of the financial crisis. Are the governance structures of the European Union fit for purpose? Do the current changes in the top-leadership team represent a ‘window of opportunity’ for the European Union to organize its work in new ways? What are the main challenges for the European Union in its relations with member states at a time of increasing Euroscepticism?

All are welcome! No pre-registration necessary.
