In a context of Brexit, refugee crises and rising populism, Mr WELLE shared with students and participants the insight of the European Parliament to these challenges and what could be the strategy to adopt in the foreseeable future. The Director of Studies of the European Political and Administrative Studies Department, Professor Olivier COSTA then chaired the debate and opened the floor to the numerous questions of students and participants.
