International Affairs Building, Room 1501

Europe successfully escaped a debt crisis in 2012, but still faces myriad challenges. Youth unemployment is at an all-time high, growth is stagnating and we are facing the prospect of a lost decade (or more). Political challenges are also mounting – calling into question the viability of the union. This panel discussion will consider both the economic and political challenges facing Europe today and the prospects for Europe going forward. A public reception will follow the event.
