In the wake of the 2019 EU elections, the Future Europe Initiative hosted a number of experts to discuss their insights on the results. They provided analysis on the election results, the outcome on individual nations and regions within the EU, and the impact on Europe and the European project as a whole.

Mr. Antoine Ripoll, the Representative of the EU Parliament in Washington, DC, provided opening remarks and Dr. Frances G. Burwell, Distinguished Fellow with the Future Europe Initiative at the Atlantic Council, moderated the conversation.

Additional speakers included Dr. Emiliano Alessandri from the German Marshall Fund of the United States, Dr. CĂ©lia Belin from The Brookings Institution, Ms. Katerina Sokou from Kathimerini and SKAI TV, and Mr. Bart Oosterveld from the Atlantic Council.

To share the perspective on the ground, Mr. Jeremy Cliffe of the Economist and Ms. Sophia Besch of the Centre for European Reform joined us via webcast from Brussels and Berlin respectively.
