White paper on the future of Europe
Reflections and scenarios for the EU27 by 2025
The White Paper looks at how Europe will change in the next decade, from the impact of new technologies on society and jobs, to doubts about globalisation, security concerns and the rise of populism. It spells out the choice faced by Europe: being swept along by those trends, or embracing them and seizing the new opportunities they bring. Europe's population and economic weight is falling as other parts of the world grow. By 2060, none of EU Member States will account for even 1% of the world's population – a compelling reason for sticking together to achieve more. A positive global force,... Europe's prosperity will continue to depend on its openness and strong links with its partners. The White Paper sets out five scenarios, each offering a glimpse into the potential state of the Union by 2025 depending on the choices Europe will make.
