As has been a biennial tradition for more than a decade, the Global Jean Monnet Conference was joined by ECSA-World, i.e. the network of national European Community Studies Associations that are active world-wide. The Conference, which took place at the European Parliament, brought together 420 leading policy-makers, diplomats, renowned academics, journalists and civil society representatives from 69 countries. Speakers included... European Commission President Barroso, Vice-President Šefčovič, Commissioners Vassiliou and De Gucht, former Presidents of the European Parliament Gil-Robles and Barón Crespo, Chairwoman Pack of the European Parliament's Culture and Education Committee, and Members of the European Parliament Méndez de Vigo and Saryusz-Wolski. The Global Jean Monnet / ECSA-World Conference confirmed its reputation as "a platform to reflect on major policy developments and coming priorities" and provided an in-depth analysis of the impact of the Lisbon Treaty in four main areas: The EU's institutional balance and institutional co-operation; Fundamental rights and EU citizenship; The new EU framework for confronting global economic challenges; The EU as an international political and security actor.
