Université de Lausanne, 21 and 22 October 2016
This colloquium was organised by the Fondation Jean Monnet pour l’Europe, in collaboration with HEIRS and RICHIE and supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The theme was Forms of Europe: of the European Union and of other organizations.
The questions on forms and means of European integration were discussed by fifteen experts (academics and actor-witnesses) with special focus on the perspective of economic integration, political union, federalism and different forms of cooperation and integration outside EU borders.
Around Pat Cox, president of the Foundation Jean Monnet, former president of the European Parliament and of the European Movement International, the Foundation had the honour to welcome for this occasion Professor Leszek Balcerowicz, who held his keynote conference on “The Differences in Economic Growth in Europe”. By their sides were José Maria Gil-Robles, member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Economic and Financial Sciences, former president of the Jean Monnet Foundation for Europe, of the European Parliament and of the European Movement International, and François Nordmann, former ambassador of the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the international organisations in Geneva.
