60 years after its foundation by the Treaties of Rome, the EU faces enormous challenges. Not least among them is the rise of neo-nationalist sentiment and even of par ties hostile to its structure and fundamental democratic values. At the same time, it shows signs of a remarkable economic recovery and renewed enthusiasm for the ‘European Project’ as a whole.

The EAP has followed changes of public opinion by observing various national elections this year, notably in the Netherlands, France and the UK, most recently also in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. This roundtable discussion with European top diplomats in Hong Kong will try to assess the current state of the EU and prospects for the future political, social and economic development of Europe in the years to come.

Discussants:

  • Mrs. Lucie Nebesářová

Consul General of the Czech Republic to Hong Kong and Macau

  • Mr. Eric Berti

Consul General of France to Hong Kong and Macau

  • Mr. Karsten Tietz

Deputy Consul General of Germany to Hong Kong and Macau

  • Dr. James Downes

Assistant Professor, Dept. of Government & Public Administration, Chinese University of Hong Kong

  • Prof. H. Werner Hess

Deputy Director, EAP, Dept. of Government and International Studies/HKBU

  • Dr. Emilie Tran

Assistant Professor, Dept. of Government and International Studies, HKBU

This event is co-organized by the European Studies Programme, Dept. of Government and International Studies, Hong Kong Baptist University
