BJA Webinar on the European Union in Perspective
"What is Currently at Stake?"
With KU Leuven Professor Steven Van Hecke
In the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, some events can hugely impact the future of Europe.
The BJA EU Committee is honored to invite you to a session in which Professor Steven Van Hecke will share his views on the impact of the German elections and the new coalition on the future of Europe, the French Presidency of the European Council and the upcoming French presidential elections, the strained relations between the EU with Hungary, Poland and others on the principle of the rule of law, and the new post-Covid geo-political scene in which the European Union needs to navigate.
