Six Decades from the Treaty of Rome: The Light and the Shadows

Authors: Duško Lopandic & Ivan Knežević


The development of European integration, as the first venture towards a united continent, represent a unique case in history. By implementing novel solutions in inter-state relations, the EU has achieved great results and through decades has secured peace, stability and prosperity to a great part of Europe. The anniversary of the Treaty of Rome will be marked in the midst of a complex multi-crisis and the expectation of the commencement of negotiations with the United Kingdom for its exit from the European Union. Faced with a spectrum of different future development scenarios, it can be expected that the EU will come to represent a more flexible integration that would run at “different speeds” or have multiple concentric circles.

No EU Future Without Enlargement

Author: Maja Bobić


On 1 March 2017, European Commission (EC) President Jean-Claude Juncker presented the White Paper on the Future of Europe to the members of the Commission and the European Parliament (EP), as well as the European public at large. This document is aimed at helping the 27 EU Member States take major decisions on the direction the EU will take and its development after the United Kingdom leaves it and in the increasingly complex global framework. It is already clear that the options proposed in the White Paper lack serious vision. Notably, the absence of enlargement in considerations of EU future indicates lack of vision, as well as the Commission’s increasingly frequent “forgetfulness” when it comes to this policy.
