Objective

On 1 July 2023, Spain will take over the reins of the Council of the European Union, holding the Rotating Presidency for the fifth time since its accession to the then-European Community back in 1986. 

To discuss the aims and priorities of the incoming Spanish Presidency, the Elcano Royal Institute and the Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA) will host policymakers to meet with key stakeholders and the wider public in a Pre-Presidency Conference (PPC) taking place on 1-2 June 2023 in Madrid. The conference will feature high level discussions between researchers from the TEPSA Network, members of the public including students and civil society representatives, and key policymakers from the Spanish government. 

The discussions will concern key European policy issues, including (in a context of Ukraine and Moldova’s newfound status as EU candidate countries) the state of play of the enlargement file, how to build a competitive economy for Europe, how can the EU accelerate its climate action to achieve the goal of making Europe the world’s first climate-neutral continent, and the impact of post-truth politics on the EU, among others.
