Less than two weeks after the European elections, the EUCE and the Goethe Institut Montreal join forces to host a public round table on the results of the elections and the future perspectives for the European Union in the next five years. The Cérium, the Canadian Centre for German and European Studies at the Université de Montréal and the Consulate General of Germany in Montreal are also partners of the event.

He has also been a member of the Presidium of the Convention on the Future of Europe (2002-2003).

The conference will be followed by a discussion with four academics who will share their analysis of the recent elections:
