Quo vadis European Union of 27?

The EU between internal tensions, COVID-crisis and external challenges - Polish and German perspectives

Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Poland - in cooperation with the German Economy Research Department at the World Economy Research Institute, the German Polish Academic Forum and the Institute of International Economic Policy at the SGH Warsaw School of Economics - cordially invites to the conference "Quo vadis European Union of 27? The EU between internal tensions, COVID-crisis and external challenges - Polish and German perspectives". The conference will take place on 13 and 14 October 2021 and can also be followed online.

Details

The European Union (EU) has been struggling for years with multiple crises such as the eurozone crisis, the migration crisis, Brexit and economic stagnation. The COVID-19 pandemic, which prevails for more than a year, has become an additional challenge that not only requires considerable efforts from the member countries of the EU in economic, political and social terms, but also makes existing acute deficits and structural problems unsparingly apparent. In addition, the EU is exposed to various external and global challenges. Against this background, the conference will discuss current problems, challenges, and perspectives of the post-Brexit EU-27 from a Polish and German perspective.

We are pleased to welcome the former EU Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Günther H. Oettinger, as keynote speaker on 13 October. Mr Oettinger will speak on the topic "Impacts of Artificial Intelligence on European economic development".

The conference will be held in English and German.
