Europe after the Elections - New challenges and uncertainties

DEBATE

The European Union is at historic crossroads, since the choices of the next five-year period will be decisive for its future and form. Where is Europe driven after the European elections? What conclusions can be drawn from the behaviour of the electorate and how can the citizens' lost of trust in the "European Dream" be redeemed? What is the room for compromise, consensus and exercising commonly accepted policies in critical matters (refugee crisis, foreign policy, economic policy, institutional changes) with the composition of the new European Parliament?
