Workshop: Europe’s value

On 16 January 2012, the Federal Foreign Office in cooper­ation with the IEP hosted a workshop dealing with the topic: “Europe’s Value.“ A number of well-known academics with a profes­sional background in law, economics and politics from the IEP network discussed questions dealing with the value of the European Union from an inter­dis­ci­plinary perspective. Reason for the workshop was given by the dwindling confi­dence of the European citizens in Europe. Europe’s value was not only considered from an economic perspective, but equally discussed from a foreign policy view, the space of freedom, security and justice, as well as enlargement policies and the question concerning the costs of a Non-Europe.
