The future of Europe is the topic of a debate on Monday to which Bertelsmann and the Brussels Centre for Fine Arts (Bozar) expect the star investor and author George Soros, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, and former French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici. The occasion is the publication of George Soros’ book “Tragedy of the European Union: Disintegration or Revival?”. The discussion will be moderated by Gregor Peter Schmitz, EU correspondent for Der Spiegel in Brussels and co-author of the book, which is published in Germany as a Spiegel book by the Bertelsmann subsidiary DVA.
The event in Bozar’s Henry Le Boeuf Hall is open to the public. Bertelsmann expects more than a thousand guests, including a number of personalities from politics, business, the cultural scene and society. The panel session will be the first public political debate after the EU summit in Brussels on June 26-27, at which the heads of government plan to determine the candidate for the post of Commission President.
