After years of multiple crises, the European Union 27 should re-energise the European project. As a culmination of more than 120 national and international multi-stakeholder debates on the state and future of the European Union, a package deal for the EU27 has been drafted, titled „Re-energising Europe. A package deal for the EU 27". It outlines an ambitious, yet realistic, "win-win package deal" covering the economic and social, migration and security dimensions to overcome deadlocks. How would this deal help Europe go forward? What does the future hold for the EU27, when authoritarian populist threat is still in the agenda?

The report will be presented by Yann-Sven Rittelmeyer, Policy Analyst at the European Policy Centre, Brussels. The presentation will be followed by a panel debate between Kristi Raik, Director of Estonian Foreign Policy Institute, Ahto Lobjakas, Political Analyst and Journalist, Hannes Rumm, Counselor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Péter Krekó, Executive Director of the Political Capital Institute, Budapest. The discussion will be moderated by Andrei Liimets, Project Coordinator of NPE at the Open Estonia Foundation.

The working language of the event will be English, without simultaneous translation.
Registration until January 16 at www.oef.org.ee/register
Copies of the report will be available on the spot.
