EU in Turbulence? The State of the EU and Its Impact on Energy and Climate Policy

TimeLoc
28 March 2017
Berlin
Germany

This is also reflected in a loss of confidence in the EU and its institutions - which was most clearly expressed in the Brexit referendum. The discussion will be introduced by keynote speeches by Silke Karcher (BMUB), Frederik Moch (DGB) and Nils Meyer-Ohlendorf (Ecologic Institute).Read more
