New project “The Relaunch of Europe. Mapping Member State Reform Interests” launched

The project “The Relaunch of Europe. Mapping Member State Reform Interests”, imple­mented by the Institut für Europäische Politik in cooper­ation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, analyses the willingness of govern­ments, political parties, civil society organi­za­tions and the general public to deepen European integration in the coming years within the framework of a pan-European study. In addition, the project will identify concrete reform projects in the areas of asylum and migration, the Economic and Monetary Union, the Social Union as well as the Defense Union. Support for these current policy initia­tives as well as for the five scenarios for the future of the EU laid out by the Commission will be inves­ti­gated among the afore­men­tioned actors in all member states of the EU-27. On the one hand, the study’s goal is to demon­strate the scope of action for a prompt reform of the European Union. On the other hand, the study aims to provide a scien­tific inves­ti­gation of which nations could form a potential ‘core Europe’ in case of further differ­en­ti­ation within the process of European integration. The results of the study are to be presented in October 2017.
