Conference: EU Strategic Talks (4 June 2018)

Stability, Security, Cooperation – Challenges in a Time of Upheaval

On 1 July 2018, Austria will assume the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. This third Austrian Presidency takes place during a phase of political upheaval: in particular the migration crisis, the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU and the resulting political volatility have called the EU’s unity into question and indicated the EU’s immediate need for fundamental reforms. The Austrian presidency faces a challenging agenda: including among other issues, Brexit negotiations and the multiannual financial framework. According to the motto “A Europe that protects”, Austria, together with Estonia and Bulgaria in the framework of the Trio Presidency, has committed to stemming illegal migration, securing prosperity and competitiveness. A strong focus is also put on the dedication to stability of the EU candidates and neighbour countries bordering the EU in the Western Balkans and South-East Europe. How can security and competitiveness be ensured for the future of Europe and how can social cohesion be strengthened? In which ways has a multi-speed Europe already become reality? In which areas will be a deepening of cooperation, and where can we expect increased subsidiarity? And what do these developments mean for the already complex legal system of the European Union?
