France and the European Union, The Way Forward

Following the UK referendum outcome, the future of the European Union and the European project has been placed into doubt. As a founding member of the EU, France has played a central role in the development and evolution of the EU and has a vital bilateral relationship with the UK. Paris will be a critical voice in shaping the Union's agenda in the upcoming months and years. Please join us on Thursday, July 21 for a timely discussion with former Prime Minister and current Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Jean-Marc Ayrault, on France's future vision for Europe, the rise of Euroscepticism and Europe’s security challenges to the south and east following the NATO Warsaw Summit.

Cocktail reception immediately following event.
