(12 December 2014) – Jean Quatremer, a journalist with Libération, shared with the members and the team of AEIDL his views on the prospects of the European Union. The EU is in bad shape, but by being proactive and more open to the press and the public, the new EU leaders seem determined to “make things happen”.
This Friday, AEIDL inaugurated a cycle of internal conferences. Every three months on the occasion of its strategic brainstorming days, a specialist in European issues will be invited to speak with AEIDL’s members, team, experts and other people close to the association.
Jean Quatremer, the Brussels correspondent for the French daily Libération, was the first to respond to the invitation. It was an excellent start. For more than two hours, this veteran of European affairs of 20 years revealed his vision of the European Union, its institutions and its prospects.
