The organisation of an “EU27” summit in Bratislava takes note of the British decision to leave the EU and is a decisive step in other Member States’ expression of their desire for unity. This summit aims to launch the process to revive European construction, underscoring both the principles guiding Europeans’ common identity against a backdrop of globalisation and the fields in which it is in their interest to work better together, collective security in particular.
Yves Bertoncini and Enrico Letta take a stand in this Tribune and focus on three main elements:

2. Living better together in a globalised world
3. Asserting that there is strength in unity when faced with threats
