The European Union after COVID-19: Where next for the new EU leadership?

The European Union Centre of Excellence at RMIT and Contemporary European Studies Association of Australia (CESAA) invite you to this online event to celebrate Europe Day 2020.

Ursula Von Der Leyen and the new College of Commissioners took office on 1 December 2019, alongside a new President of the European Council, Charles Michel. Since then they have released the European Green Deal only then to see the formal exit of the UK from the EU, and then the outbreak of COVID-19 with devastating consequences for many European citizens and significant disruption to the livelihoods of most Europeans.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel and attention is turning to the next steps as restrictions are lifted. What are the immediate challenges for the new leaders, and how do they refocus on their vision for a more democratic, equitable, greener and more prosperous Europe?

Guest Speakers:

Prof Bruno Mascitelli, Swinburne University of Technology

Dr Nina Marković-Khaze, Macquarie University

Dr Serena Lee Kelly, University of Canterbury (NZ)
