The Conference on the Future of Europe was formally launched on Sunday 9 May 2021 at a ceremony in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
The Conference, chaired by the three presidents of Parliament, Council and Commission, aims to involve citizens in a wide public debate on the mid- and long-term perspectives for the EU.
This evening’s event marked the launch of ERA’s contribution to the Conference. ERA will closely monitor and enrich the unfolding debate through a series of its own conferences and discussion fora with a particular focus on the legal aspects of the ongoing analysis and emerging proposals.
A panel of two key politicians with a legal background – Vice Presidents Vĕra Jourová of the Commission and Katarina Barley of the Parliament – discussed aims and procedure of the Conference with an academic, Professor Peter-Christian Müller-Graff (Heidelberg), and with ERA’s former director Wolfgang Heusel.
More than 200 invited guests from the legal community in 29 countries were gathering online for this special event.
