The 2017 year’s edition of the JM conference was devoted to the current major political turning point in EU history and its consequences for the future of the European integration. This theme has been very high on the agenda of political and academic debates recently and is about to gain even more relevance in the light of the Commission’s White Paper, the speech on the state of the union by president Juncker and also major political developments in EU member states in the course of 2017. This year’s conference objective was to allow debate on important EU-policy issues but also to disseminate information on more technical issues for the new Jean Monnet grant holders.
