Fossum in ELF expert forum

Fossum will give a presentation on differentiation in a multi-speed EU at an event organised by the European Liberal Forum on 3 July 2020.

About the event

The new Commission has put the Future of the Institutional Framework on its political agenda and the EU’s institutions have started preparations for the “Conference on the Future of Europe”. Amongst other issues, three major institutional reforms have been listed in the political guidelines of the new European Commission: 

  • Firstly, the question of how the President of the Commission will be proposed and elected in the future. 
  • Secondly, Ursula von der Leyen has announced a special relationship between the Commission and Parliament. This is expected to include an indirect right of initiative for the European Parliament and would make the voice of MEPs more audible. 
  • And, thirdly, the Commission President has spoken out in favour of introducing transnational lists for the next European Parliament elections. 

This Expert Forum brings together scholars, researchers and liberal policymakers from all over Europe for an open debate about the EU’s Future Institutional Framework.  

Fossum will give a presentation in the panel 'Governing differentiation in a multi-speed EU', where participants will discuss the following questions:

What is the current state of the multi-speed EU? How can the EU evolve into a more flexible, but also more coherent entity? Is the gap between the Eurozone and the EU27 narrowing or widening?

Please note that this event is by invitation only.
