FT Weekend Event: What Future for Europe?

Jean-Christophe Rufin, Roula Khalaf, Daniel Dombey, Anna Bosch and Luis Garicano

Venue: Campus de Santa Cruz la Real, IE University, Refectorio

Populism, transatlantic tensions, eurozone reform, Brexit: the new European Commission faces multiple, perhaps fatal, challenges. Or perhaps this is too pessimistic. Europe also has positive stories to tell, in areas such as innovation. Top Financial Times editors Roula Khalaf and Daniel Dombey are joined by Jean-Christophe Rufin, Prix-Goncourt winning French novelist, Anna Bosh, international section journalist for TVE and Luis Garicano, economist, professor of Strategy and Economics at IE Business School, MEP for Ciudadanos and Vice President of the European Parliamentary Group ALDE (Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe), drawing on the results of a major FT research project. Chaired by FT Literary Editor, Frederick Studemann.
