Graduates explore policy-making in Brussels

This year’s Europaeum Policy Seminar Policy-making inside Europe was the tenth in our series of annual special three-day programmes of talks, discussions, interviews and visits, involving those at the sharp end of policy and decision-making in Brussels and focussing on issues of current concern. Some 16 doctoral students and graduates from Europaeum member universities, plus another 15 students from the Institute of Political Studies, Catholic University of Portugal Lisbon, co-host of the seminar. Sessions were held at the European Parliament and the Portuguese Permanent Representation to the European Union, and at the centre for Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), who hosted the graduates for a first round of discussion. The graduates particularly enjoyed discussion on EU27 responses to the Brexit Referendum, on EU-US relations under Trumpism and on EU-Russia relationships after Crimea and the war on the Donbass, on European defence policy and the future of the NATO, and on the future of the EU’s financial system. Graduates particularly enjoyed discussions with Karel Lenoo, CEO and Director of the Centre for European Policy Studies, with Pauline Massart, Deputy Director of Friends of Europe, and with Charles Tannock, Conservative UK MEP. Graduates from Oxford, Helsinki, Leiden, UPF Barcelona, Charles University Prague, Graduate Institute, Geneva, the Jagiellonian, Krakow, the Complutense, Madrid, and the IEP, Lisbon, all took part in this tenth in the series and perhaps the best of all. The event was subsidised by the the IEP, by MEP Paulo Rangel, our host at the EP, by FEPS, and by The Europaeum.
