We cordially invite you to our debate on Europe at crossroads with Herman van Rompuy as key note speaker. Europe  faces  severe  challenges  such  as migration flowsunemploymentfinancial  instability, terror threats  and  conflicts  in  the  neighborhood. Addressing these challenges and defining political responses require joint European action since effective crisis management goes beyond national capacities. The transnational discourse between political actors in Brussels from different sectors, institutions and countries has to be strengthened. Party representatives play a crucial part in stimulating such a debate and shaping it towards a pro-European line which provides counterarguments to growing nationalism and populism. At the conference, a special focus will be given to political strategies and European narratives offered by the centre-right in Europe, in Brussels as well as on the national level.
