While Europeans are facing major challenges both internally (Brexit, migration issues, growing anti-European sentiment) and externally (trade tensions, tightening of US monetary policy, a greater-than-envisaged slowdown in China, cyber and geopolitical risks at large), the 2019 European elections will decisively shape the EU’s general dynamics for the next five years.

Following the political outcome of this key vote, a major shift could happen in key areas such as international trade and finance, climate change, digital revolution and consumer protection, security and migration. Most importantly, it will reflect the extent to which the gap between EU institutions and EU citizens’ expectations will be significant.

All this calls for in-depth reflections and bold decisions on the necessary changes to be made to EU’s current functioning. This implies to ask ourselves the way we should consolidate further what is effectively working and whether we should reconsider the breakdown of competences between the EU and local level. In any event, choices to be made should reflect the needs for a strengthened economic and geopolitical sovereignty (external challenges) but also for an enhanced inclusiveness and representativeness (internal ones). Now is undoubtedly the right time to collectively reflect on our ability to transform these challenges into opportunities in a threefold way:

  • How to further strengthen the financing of the EU’s economy? (panel 1)
  • How to combine the EU subsidiarity principle with the need for a strengthened European political integration? (panel 2)
  • How to reinforce Europe’s global competitiveness in an uncertain and ever-changing world? (panel 3)

MALEKI CORPORATE GROUP is the overall organiser and in charge also for the Frankfurt conference part.
