The European Council has charged President Herman Van Rompuy (together with the President of the Commission, the President of the Eurogroup and the President of the European Central Bank) to elaborate the report “Towards a genuine Economic and Monetary Union”. The final version of this report will constitute the basis for the decisions at the European Council of 13 and 14 December 2012.
This conference-debate in cooperation with the Master Affaires Européennes will discuss the possibilities from
small modifications to ordinary treaty revision. It is co-organised by Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute,
Policy Network and the Polish Institute of International Affairs. The event is structured into a keynote speech by Simon Hix who
published “What’s wrong with the European Union and how to fix it” in 2008; a
panel with one researcher from each of the think tanks; and a conclusion by
Yves Bertoncini, author of “European Politics: States, Powers and Citizens of
the EU” (2010).
