Dear Friends and Members,

Emergency measures undertaken by EU leaders to face the pandemic will significantly shape the EU's future for the years to come. In front of this formidable challenge, this initiative aims at discussing European Council's role in the response to Covid-19 and the potential wider implications of its decisions for EU governance and institutional reforms.

Could the pandemic trigger a new integration drive or will it further reinforce the crisis of integration?
How can the European Council avoid the risk that the pandemic further exacerbates the existing divides among the member states? Can a more flexible and differentiated approach help manage these tensions and find a proper balance between member states’ coordination and EU integration?
