Challenge Europe hits the spot with the right questions

Has the time come to revise the Stability and Growth Pact – which provides the diciplinary foundations of the single currency – or to keep it as it is? Are the trans-Atlantic partners now divided by different values as well as different interests – notably over the global rule of law? These are just some of the “hot questions” which are dealt with in the latest issue of Challenge Europe which will be published by The EPC on November 4.

Has the time come to revise the Stability and Growth Pact – which provides the diciplinary foundations of the single currency – or to keep it as it is?

Are the trans-Atlantic partners now divided by different values as well as different interests – notably over the global rule of law?

How should the Commission’s responsibilities for EU external trade and development policy fit with a stronger and more united EU Common Foreign Security and Defence policy?

Can Europe’s political parties rise to the challenge of enlargement in a constitutional European democracy? What next for sustainable development after Johannesburg?

These are just some of the “hot questions” which are dealt with in the latest issue of Challenge Europe – the on-line European public policy journal which will be published by The European Policy Centre on.

“With more than 20 distinguished contributors – including Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa, the vice President of the European Central Bank, Commissioners Pascal Lamy and Margot Wallström as well as the well known Italian economist, Giorgio La Malfa, Challenge Europe is more than ever compulsory reading for all those following EU developments at such an exciting and important time,” the editor -in-chief of Challenge Europe, John Palmer, Political Director of the EPC said.”
