European Reflection Group

On 10th February 2017, JESC hosted the first meeting of a group which has been set up to reflect on the future of Europe and the European Union.  Members of the Group represent a variety of European nationalities and either work for the European Institutions or are involved in European Affairs more generally.  At this opening meeting, the Group took as its starting point the text of a speech that Pope Francis gave when he was conferred the Charlemagne Prize for Europe on 6 May 2016.
