*How Fragile is Europe*
October 13, 2014
East Gallery, Buell Hall
The last few years have been rocky ones for Europe. The deep financial crisis has contributed to widespread skepticism among Europeans on the future of the integration process and its scope. As the new European Commission is installed, Europe’s economic recovery seems to be stagnating and its relation with Russia represents a source of continuing unrest. These issues and more will be introduced and discussed by the panelists.
