The Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings and King’s College London will hold a conference featuring experts and top officials to look at Europe’s shaky position in an ever-evolving world. The conference will reflect on Europe’s economic and strategic future in the wake of the European parliamentary elections.
Separate panels will look at Europe’s economy in light of the financial crisis and at the potential global role of the European Union, particularly in light of the results of the European Parliament election and the crisis in Ukraine. A keynote address by Deputy National Security Advisor Antony Blinken will reflect on the transatlantic partnership and the crisis in Ukraine. After each session, participants will take audience questions.(June 6, 2014)
