Europe has voted. With a high voter turnout and a clear vote for the pro-European parties, it has come out in favor of a strong European Union. Now, it is up to France and Germany, as the traditional “twin engine” of the EU, to assume responsible leadership and, together with the other member states, take forward the next steps in European integration.
There are many open questions, however: Can France and Germany use the momentum of the European elections to concertedly realign the EU? In what policy fields can this succeed? What does Responsible Leadership look like in the current situation?
Sabine Thillaye (LREM – La Republique en Marche), Chair of the European Affairs Committee in the French National Assembly, and Markus Ferber (CSU), Member of the European Parliament, will discuss the opportunities and necessity of strong Franco-German cooperation at BMW Welt.
