On 23 February 2015 the BMW Stiftung organized a public stakeholders event in the framework of the New Pact or Europe project.

Does the EU need a new pact? Participants were asked to vote and 70% said yes - but they also felt that they were not engaged in EU politics enough. Therefore Europe for its citizens is still more about institutions than about a political union.

Participants of the discussion also agreed that coping with crises is what makes the EU grow stronger. In this context, no new ambitious project is actually needed, as the integration is a gradual process.

Panelists: Stefan Kornelius (S├╝ddeutsche Zeitung), Reinhard B├╝tikofer (European Green Party), Peter Gauweiler (CSU), Janis A. Emmanouilidis (EPC) and Michael Schaefer (BMW Stiftung).
