Our Sixth Annual Hellenic Observatory Lecture, held on 6 December 2004, was extremely well-attended reflecting both the reputation of our speaker, Professor Loukas Tsoukalis, and the significance of his theme, European Integration: What is at Stake Now (for British, Greeks and others)?

At a time when discussions on Europe’s future both constitutionally and geographically figure highly, Professor Tsoukalis provided a forceful overview of the challenges facing the European Union and the citizens of Europe in pursuit of the European project. Professor Tsoukalis tackled all the weighty issues of the day from the democratic deficit to economic policy, from enlargement to transatlantic relations.

Building on his book ‘What Kind of Europe?’, Professor Tsoukalis stressed that Europeans rather than European nation states are faced with a series of stark choices about their future and that these choices which are inherently and essentially political irrespective of nationality. Professor Tsoukalis stressed that Europeans rather than European nation states are faced with a series of stark choices about their future and that these choices which are inherently and essentially political irrespective of nationality.

The lecture ended with Professor Tsoukalis proposing that irrespective of the outcome of national referenda on the Constitutional Treaty, it was now time to have an open, public debate on the future of Europe.
