Rahel Hutgens / Stephan Conermann: Macron’s Idea of European Universities. From Vision to Reality

ZEI Discussion Paper C 249/2018

On the 26th of September 2017 the French President Emmanuel Macron gave a speech on Europe’s future, the so called “Initiative for Europe”, and presented ambitious visions on how to reform and change Europe as well as how to solve the contemporary global challenges Europe has to face. He highlighted six keys to sovereignity that are necessary to rebuild a sovereign, united and democratic Europe. In addition to that, he suggested the formation of a European University Alliance by 2024. The present paper mainly focuses on the different interpretations of this idea and outlines the implementation of this project, its framework as well as possible stumbling blocks.
