The European construction has floursihed on essentially economic bases since the Treaty of Rome in 1957, before enlarging progressively its competences and becoming today’s “European Union”, a Union of which the franco-german couple has always been a driving force.
At a time when the European project is attacked from several political and media fronts and when the franco-german couple has to redefine its relationship after the French election and soon-to-be German elections, the Jacques Delors Institute, in partnership with the City of Strasbourg, the Young Europeans, and its European partners in the project “More Europe to overcome the crisis”, debate about the assesment of 60 years of European construction and the new challenges it has to address, and, in anparticularly unstable and stimulating international context.
