Europe Day 2019: Celebrating Europe in a Year of Transition. Which Way Ahead?’

The EU Centre at RMIT and the Contemporary European Studies Association of Australia (CESAA) invite you to come celebrate Europe Day 2019.

Europe Day 2019 offers an opportunity to celebrate various aspects of the European Union (EU) in a context of great change. If there were not sufficient economic, social, cultural, political and environmental uncertainties already, the transition within the EU institutions adds another significant dimension to the processes of change. Elections for the European Parliament, new Presidents for the European Commission and the European Council, and a new High Representative together mean a very important new leadership for the EU. What are some of the key challenges for this new leadership? How might they respond?

Dr Chiara De Lazzari  and Dr Emma Shortis, two early career researchers, will lead the conversation on the ways the EU is responding to challenges facing the Europe in the global context.
