Does the Lisbon Treaty raise more problems than it solves?
Daubeny Room, Magdalene College
11.00 – 12.30
Tuesday, 25th May
Does the long-heralded Lisbon Treaty pose fresh questions rather than solve older problems? Which way is Europe going? Is the European political class up to the job of embedding a new European citizenry? Is our triumvirate up to the job? What is the role for national leaders and presidents? Who leads Europe forward in this new Global era? Is Europe prepared for challenges from the East? Where is the Europe of our dreams?
This lively panel debate began with brief initial provocations from two long-standing Europeanists and two graduate Jenkins Scholars
