People across Europe are concerned about the new wave of political trends and its potential implications in member states. Furthermore, it seems that the concept of European integration no longer appeals to an increasing number of European citizens. In March 2018, Italian voters used the ballot cards to express their desire for change. As a result, Italy has now its first Euro-critical governing coalition; the Five-Star Movement and the League. What are the consequences of this constellation for the third economic power in the Eurozone? What are the reactions across Europe? With this conference we intend to provide a platform for political experts and stakeholders from different EU Member States to take stock and exchange views on the current developments in Italy.
