After the European Parliament election: How will the EU change?

Eurooppasali / Livestream · 18.06.2024 10:00 - 11:30

The European Parliament elections on 6-9 June will mark the start of a crucial and likely contentious legislature. Over the next five years, the EU faces a tough political agenda – with geopolitical challenges, negotiations on enlargement and internal reform as well as a new long-term budget, and other projects such as the green and digital transformation and the reform of the single market. At the same time, the rise of far-right parties in both the Parliament and the Council could make it more difficult to build majorities.

In this seminar, we take stock of the election results and look ahead to the next legislature. What new majorities will emerge? What will be the priorities of the next European Commission? And who is in the running for the EU’s top jobs?
