In the presentation on his recent book, "Which European Union? Europe After the Euro Crisis", Fabbrini will present the EU as an organization of states pursuing different aims instead of moving in the same direction at different speeds. He will provide an alternative perspective on the EU that led to multiple compromises in its structure and showed how the Euro crisis has called them into question.
Light lunch will be served before the talk.
Fabbrini will argue that a new European political order is necessary to deal with the consequences of the crisis, based on an institutional differentiation between the EU member states interested only in market co-operation and those advancing towards a genuine economic and monetary union. Such a differentiation would allow the latter group to become a political, conceptualized as a compound union of states and citizens, while preserving a revised framework of a single market, that both groups of states can participate in.
