The first public event scheduled by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in EU Law and International Relations at the University of Deusto was on 24 and 25 March.
The meeting features talks by several experts and is entitled: Institutional enlargement and renewal: towards greater democratic legitimacy and political integration in the European Union? Six experts from different areas of the world gave their opinions on the main institutional policy changes and challenges that the EU is facing in 2014.
With Croatia's entry in July 2013, the number of EU member states has risen to 28. Citizens from these countries were called to the polls on 25 May 2014 to choose their representatives to the European Parliament.
This election coincides with major institutional changes together with the enormous challenge of widespread indifference caused by the economic recession and the social consequences of budget cutbacks.
The international JMCE meeting at the University of Deusto in March aims to analyse and debate political and institutional issues that will determine the immediate future of the EU.
