The series of crises that hit the EU after 2008 led many politicians to argue that the whole model of European integration needed to be reformed. Despite a renewed sense of possibility since mid-2017, the EU still needs to be made more flexible and democratic. In his new book, Europe Reset: New Directions for the EU, Carnegie senior fellow Richard Youngs maps out innovative ideas for more participative and flexible processes of European cooperation.
Carnegie Europe hosted a public event to mark the Brussels launch of Europe Reset. Youngs was joined by co-commentators Tom Nuttall, Charlemagne columnist at the Economist, and Marietje Schaake, member of the European Parliament. Tomáš Valášek, director of Carnegie Europe, moderated.
