The European Union between crises to be faced and Institutions to be reformed

The dramatic situation caused by the Russian war in Ukraine, which came after two years of pandemic emergency, has confronted the European Union with an unexpected event once again in a very short period, full of unpredictable developments and uncertain consequences from many points of view. This crisis involves multiple aspects corresponding to the competence of legal, political, and economic disciplines. The workshop aims to reflect on how the European Union is reacting to this crisis and how the crisis itself could be an opportunity to transform its institutions and the political guidelines of the Member States. The workshop foresees two sessions. The morning session reflects on political and legal issues related to needed EU constitutional reforms. The afternoon session reflects on the current energy and inflation crises and its implication for economic policy management.
