Strategy Council Europe

European Union today: still an opportunity?

Tuesday, April 24 | h 15.00 – 18.30 | Bibliothèque Solvay | Rue Belliard 137, Brussels

The first edition of the Strategy Council Europe represents Deloitte's contribution to facilitating a high profile discussion regarding the future of the European project, gathering EU institutions as well as the public affairs and business communities of the European capital. This initiative is also based upon an in-depth Survey of the European citizens' sentiment towards the Union and its policies.

The Survey was designed to highlight the European citizens' sentiment toward the future of the European project, measuring not only their general degree of confidence in the Union, but also specific indicators such as their perception of the EU's activity to date, the perceived benefits and drawbacks of their Member State participation in the Union and issues related to the ongoing development of a shared European identity.

Following the Survey, the main challenges and opportunities identified by European citizens will form the basis for a debate with the participation of prominent representatives from European and national Institutions and Think Tanks.
