The EU in Focus series gets underway with a talk by Professor Nicolo´ Conti

Professor Nicolo´ Conti kicked off LPD´s Europe in Focus series with his talk on EU Institutions and Decision-Making Processes. Conti provided an overview of the unique structure of the EU and took students inside the complexity of the decision-making process. Students asked questions about the role of lobbyists (they have a big role), EU foreign policy (one of the EU´s least unified policy areas), and the admission of additional members (unlikely for now). Conti also had a question for the students: "Should Europe become more supranational?" Students expressed divergent views, reflecting the internal debate in Europe about the future of the EU.

Key areas of inquiry include national identity, immigration, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, political extremism and discrimination of Roma – all seen through the specific lens of the five countries in which the Fellowship takes place.
