The future of the European Union after the euro crisis: Political union and its discontents

Europe at the Crossroads debate series

UPDATE Thursday 29 November 2012, 3.25pm: Due to unforeseen circumstances Emma Bonino as previously advertised will now not be taking part in this event. LSE apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.

The euro crisis has dealt a powerful blow to the EU’s political system. Many European leaders have been ousted, more radical parties are becoming more powerful, and questions are increasingly being asked about the legitimacy of the European Union. European leaders find themselves trapped between the need for a more integrated Europe and the demands of voters: the necessity and impossibility of "more Europe".

Ulrike Guérot is ECFR Representative for Germany. Previously she was Senior Transatlantic Fellow with the German Marshall Fund and she headed the European Union unit at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) in Berlin.

Mark Leonard is Co-Founder and Director of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the first pan-European Think Tank.

Anthony Teasdale is Director, EU Internal Policies, in the secretariat of the European Parliament and Senior Visiting Fellow at the LSE.

José Ignacio Torreblanca is El Pais columnist and Head of ECFR Madrid. In May 2011, Foreign Policy en español has ranked him amongst the 10 most influential new intellectuals in Spain and Latin-America. He is a Professor at the UNED and previously worked as Senior Analyst for EU affairs at Elcano Royal Institute for International Affairs.
