Summary

On June 6, the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings and King’s College London held a conference featuring experts and top officials to look at Europe’s shaky position in an ever-evolving world. The conference reflected on Europe’s economic and strategic future in the wake of the European parliamentary elections. Separate panels looked at Europe’s economy in light of the financial crisis and at the potential global role of the European Union, particularly in light of the results of the European Parliament election and the crisis in Ukraine. A keynote address by Deputy National Security Advisor Antony Blinken reflected on the transatlantic partnership and the crisis in Ukraine.

This event is part of a research and dialogue project in collaboration with the European Union. It is dedicated to the memory of Brookings Visiting Fellow Clara Marina O’Donnell, whose early death grieved us beyond measure but whose work and example continues to inspire us.
