The conference offers an early opportunity to review and assess the European Union’s inter-institutional relationships in the Juncker years (2014-2019). It will report findings from two major empirical projects conducted as part of ‘The European Commission: Where now? Where next?’ project on the internal operation of the Commission since 2014, both conducted with a number of partners and headquartered at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute. The conference will bring together scholars and key policy-makers from the European institutions to discuss the performance of the Juncker Commission and how it compares with its predecessors. The aim is to identify legislative trends, as well as to examine the outgoing Commission in historical perspective.
The discussion will be followed by a reception.
Participation to the event is upon registration. Given the presence of a large number of distinguished EUI alumni in Brussels, the event will also represent an opportunity to connect with these highly-valued alumni.
