New Kids on the Block: A Complete Changeover of Europe’s Leadership in 2014

On April 18, 2014, Hans Martens, senior advisor to the European Policy Centre on energy and public service reform, gave a lecture entitled "New Kids on the Block: A Complete Changeover of Europe's Leadership in 2014."

From Mr. Martens' abstract:

A lot of attention has been devoted to the “Euro-Crises”, but although the media and the financial markets seem to have forgotten it, the crises still bites in the real economy across Europe. This will have an effect on the European elections in May, and possibly on the whole changeover process in the EU this year. What is likely to happen, and what will it mean for Europe internally and as a player in the World. On very serious test is TTIP – the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Are Europeans ready to go through with it? And will Europe keep sticking together, or will the UK prepare to leave.
