Tuesday Lunch at Lowy: The future of Europe - Professor Jean Blondel presentation

The political and economic unification of Europe through the European Union is one of the modern world's greatest political projects. Indeed, it questions many of the conventional wisdoms of political science. The evolution of the European Union is also perplexing, particularly for countries such as Australia, who are geographically distant but maintain very close ties to many European countries.On 26 September at a special Tuesday version of the Wednesday Lunch at Lowy series, Professor Jean Blondel will discuss where the European Union is headed and if it can recover from its referendum setbacks.Professor Blondel is a Professorial Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre of Advanced Studies at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy.Jean Blondel
