Can National Politics Still Support International Integration? The Case of the EU

A lecture by Professor Mario Monti

6.30-8PM on Monday 25 September 2017

Venue: LSE Campus, to be confirmed to ticket holders

60 years after its foundation, major tensions are facing the EU. From institutional to political and economic tensions, from geopolitical tensions (North vs South, West vs East) to tensions between net contributors and net recipients. Threatened by the “-EXIT” temptation in the background, national politics often collide with European integration’s basic principles. However, the “case for EU support” is still robust, as the domains where a balance between the national and the European level has been reached – the Euro, the single market and the competition policy – prove.

Mario Monti (@SenatoreMonti) is President of Bocconi University and former Prime Minister of Italy.

The event will be chaired by Minouche Shafik, the Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science. Prior to this she was Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.

By courtesy of the LSE European Institute this event is free and open to all, however a ticket is required. Only one ticket per person can be requested.
