After the European Elections: A Fresh Start for the EU & the Transatlantic Relationship?

May 27, 2014 // 11:00am12:30pm

This event is organized in cooperation with the European Parliament Liaison Office with the U.S. Congress

Two days after 500 million citizens in the 28 EU Member States cast their vote to elect the Members of the European Parliament, what lessons can we draw from the world's second-largest exercise in democracy? To what extent have extremism and euro-skepticism prevailed? What exactly will change in the governance of the European Union? Will the transatlantic relationship be affected by these developments, and, if so, how? The European Parliament Liaison Office with the U.S. Congress and the Global Europe Program at the Wilson Center are delighted to host an expert panel discussion on the latest state of play of the Washington-Brussels relationship.
