How can we regulate financial markets?
How can Europe make the transition to a green economy and sustainable forms of energy?
Will reforms to welfare states foster economic growth, and if so, how do we approach these reforms?
What are the emerging patterns of intelligence sharing and law enforcement within the context of European cross-border policing?
