The European added value as determinant for the European crisis?
The notion of a “European added value” is a core concept of the European Union and lies at the heart of European politics. Therefore, the success of European policies is measured by whether it delivers an increased added value for its citizens, or not. European institutions are under considerable pressure to reach this goal. At the same time, however, it is not clearly defined which qualitative criteria the European added value need to comply with and how it can be measured quantitatively. Consequently, statements considering the achieved impact of a European added value tend to remain vague. Especially in times of crisis in Europe, it is, however, rather important to increase citizens' trust in the added value of European politics.
In the framework of the 9th Crisis Talk, we want to take up the discussion to what extent Europe’s crisis is based on the indeterminacy of the concept of a European added value. We would like to explore the question on how a European added value would have to be defined in order to counteract the crisis of trust in Europe. What changes would the European institutions have to undergo in order to visualise its undeniable added value more clearly?

Crisis Talks by the Leibniz Research Alliance »Crises in a globalised world«
In the European Union crises have always been an important driver for change and progress. Crisis situations allow the heterogeneity of European politics to be transcended through a common perception of a situation as critical and urgent and, therefore, emphasize the need for cooperation. Does the historical experience that crises lead to deeper integration still hold true? The Crisis Talks lunchtime lecture series, organized by the Leibniz Research Alliance Crises in a Globalized World, addresses how the European Union deals with crises and what we have learned from previous crisis situations.

Presented by:
The Minister for Federal and European Affairs of the State of Hessen Lucia Puttrich and the Leibniz Research Alliance “Crises in a Globalised World” in cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence “The Formation of Normative Orders”
