The Treaties of Rome: the EU is 60-years-old.
Is it too young or too old?
In the aftermath of World War II, six European countries decided to change the course of history. On 27th March 1957 Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands signed the Treaties of Rome. In seeking to create a common market, they laid the foundations for the creation of a safer, more stable and prosperous continent. Although European countries have flourished, six decades on, the European construction finds itself increasingly under stress. Should the current situation and dynamics be seen as signs of old age or are they paving the way for future developments? The round table will shed light on several aspects of the first six decades of integration, charting possible ways forward.
