The people of Europe are currently engaged in a wide discussion on the future of the Union and the direction of the integration process, with a view to propose reforms for common policies and institutions. Differentiation has been and will remain a necessity if the Europeans want to overcome stalemates in EU decision-making and improve the functioning of the European system. The central question is thus not whether there will be a differentiated Europe, but what it will or rather should look like.

The presentation of the paper Differentiated EUrope 2035: Elaboration and Evaluation of Five Potential Scenarios by Janis A. Emmanouilidis gave the occasion to discuss differentiated integration and the Conference on the Future of Europe. Other discussants included: Sandro Gozi, Member of the European Parliament; Danuta Hübner, Member of the European Parliament; and Ditte Sørensen, Chief Analyst, Think Tank Europa. The event, jointly organized by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the European Policy Centre (EPC), was moderated by Nicoletta Pirozzi, Head of the EU, politics and institutions programme, IAI.
