Students and EU officials brainstorm for a better Europe

One hundred students from 53 American and European universities gathered with high-level European Union (EU) officials at the Yale School of Management Feb. 5 and 6 for the second-annual European Student Conference to discuss the future of the European ideal.

Across six workshops, participants produced 20 papers outlining policy proposals that touch upon growth and innovation through small and medium enterprises, asylum and immigration policy, the interplay of religion and secularism in the context of European identity, the process of building a Eurozone treasury, and the future of European defense and security.
