http://www.watsoninstitute.org/Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies presents: The European Union in a Moment of Crisis (October 28-29). It is a two-day exploration of the EU at this pivotal moment in its history analyzing its institutional, financial, and foreign policy issues. Four separate panels featured two of Europes leading political figures: past European Commission President Romano Prodi (the former Italian prime minister who is now a Brown professor at large) and former Austrian Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer (a Watson Institute visiting professor). They analyze the sweeping changes that continue to reshape Europe, 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Moderating the panel is Watson Institute Director Michael Kennedy and Institute Faculty Fellow Mark Blyth. • Thursday, October 29, 7pm-8:30pm What Is the EU's Future? In this culminating event, building on the previous three, Mark Blyth proposes that the EU's future is past, with response from Romano Prodi and Alfred Gusenbauer, followed by open questions from the floor.
