On 18 February 2014, FRIDE and La Caixa Foundation organised a public event in the framework of our New Pact for Europe project, with the presence of:

Enrique Barón Crespo, former Spanish minister of transport, tourism and communications; former European Parliament president; and president of the European Foundation for Society and Information.

José María Beneyto, Spanish MP for the Popular Party; and director of the University Institute of European Studies of the CEU San Pablo University.

Ana Palacio, former Spanish foreign affairs minister and member of the Advisory Council of the New Pact for Europe.

María Joao Rodrigues, former Portuguese labour minister; professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles; and member of the Reflection Group of the New Pact for Europe. 

Jordi Sevilla, former Spanish minister of Public Administration and board member at PwC.

José Ignacio Torreblanca, director of ECFR's Madrid office, professor at UNED and member of the New Pact for Europe's Reflection Group, moderated the debate.

The event was part of a series of around 50 events organized across the EU between December 2013 and April 2014. 

The Reflection Group of the New Pact for Europe will draw on the outcome of these events to draft a proposal for a New Pact for Europe to inform the new European leadership that will come into place in 2014.
