What is the future of Europe?
A roundtable discussion, “Europe in the World: What does multipolarity mean for the EU”, featuring University of La Verne Assistant Professor of Political Science Dr. Juli Minoves, addressed the pros and cons of strengthening the common voice of Europe in Finland on May 7.
Minoves and additional experts on Europe, such as Finland’s Minister of Defense, H.E. Carl Haglund, discussed whether it is a realistic goal that Europe would speak as one.
The roundtable, featured an opening by Executive Director of the European Liberal Forum, Susanne Hartig and Executive Director of Svenska Bildningsförbunde, Fredrik Guseff.
Roundtable speakers included Minoves and Finnish Graduate School for Russian and East European Studies Researcher, Hanna Smith. Finnish Institute of International Affairs Senior Research Fellow, Charly Salonius-Pasternakn served as the moderator.
The roundtable was part of a series of events connected to Lord Dahrendorf, who was a supporter of a stronger Europe and promoted the role of the EU as a “guarantor of human rights and liberty during his time as a member of the Bundestag, as East German Commissioner, Peer of the British House of Lords and Chairman of the Boar of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.”
