The EU Summit organised on 16 September 2016 in Bratislava not only recognised the will of a majority of British people to leave the EU and the necessity for the 27 other Member States to better identify the political foundations connecting them. The Summit ended with a statement of principle reiterating their attachment to and membership within the EU, and with a “roadmap” which notably outlines the need to better assure the security of Europeans.

It is in this context, and in the perspective of the Summit foreseen for 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, that the Jacques Delors Institute, in partnership with the Gulbenkian Foundation, organise a high level round table in order to better define European identity in globalization. As Europeans officially see themselves as united by a development model which combines democracy, economic efficiency, and social cohesion. How can we strengthen the European construction asserting our common identity?
