Paris, 10 October 2018 – What is Europe for? Myths and realities


18:45 > 20:30


Elvire Fabry, senior research fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, participates in the conference organised by Émile, with the Cercle Europe of Sciences Po Alumni, on the EU's added value in the face of current problems.

In Salzburg, Emmanuel Macron, asked about the Brexit, said that “those who explain that we can easily live without Europe, that everything will be fine and that it will make a lot of money in the coffers are liars”.

But what is the added value of the European Union to the current problems? This is the question that will be asked of several observers of the European “machine”, all of whom have in common to know it from the inside, with, for each, a particular expertise that goes from trade to immigration, in going through digital or defense. Their opinions are not necessarily the same, which will make the debate alive.

Elvire Fabry intervenes alongside Thomas Guénolé, political scientist and associate researcher at the Institute of International and Strategic Relations, Marc Mossé, Director of Legal Affairs and Public Affairs of Microsoft and Patrick Saint-Paul, Head of the International Department of Le Figaro.

The conference is moderated by Anne-Sophie Beauvais, editor-in-chief of Émile magazine.
