The European Constitution - a failed Project?

IUF with Prof. Dr. Dr. Christian Kirchner

Ladies and gentlemen, Germany takes over the EU Presidency from Finland on 1 January 2007 and Chancellor Angela Merkel announced her willingness to use the six months of the presidency to revive the EU constitutional process.Following the rejection of the constitution by French and Dutch voters last year the process came to a standstill. Merkel wants to push the agenda so that by June, 2007 the then 27 EU governments will be able to agree on it.  


Prior to this development we cordially invite you for the talk «The European Constitution - a failed Project?» by Prof. Dr. Dr. Christian Kirchner.  


We look forward welcoming you

Yes, I want current messages of the Institute for Free Enterprise:


Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992)

"Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one's government is not necessarily to secure freedom"
