Almost a year after the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon, 6 months after the general election in the UK, and in view of the current budget/economic crisis it is time to discuss and debate the future (and the finality) of the European Union project. Was Lisbon the final step of European integration? Is it time to transfer competences back to the Member States? Or will the EU become more state-like? Or should the EU rather change its focus towards a more socially just and equal Europe? What is attainable and what is desirable?

UCL Laws, Centre of Law and Governance in Europe, have invited four Members of the European Parliament representing different parts of the political spectrum to reflect on many questions in a debate moderated by journalist Devid Rennie of The Economist. Each participant on the panel will be asked to deliver a five to seven minute long statement on how they see the future of the EU. On the basis of these statements a discussion will follow.
