On Thursday night, for the third time since January 2015, President François Hollande was faced with a mass murder on French soil.

The Eurocrisis and the Democratic Deficit
20 June 2012
See below for the filmed presentations from an event the Institute co-hosted with UCL School of Public Policy - as part of our EU Public Policy Series.
This featured two of the most high-profile scholars to write on the EU’s democratic
deficit - Prof Giandomenico Majone (EUI) and Prof Albert Weale (UCL) - as well as Dr Richard Corbett, a member of the European Council President’s
cabinet. Their presentations discussed iif Eurozone crisis management is sidelining democratic politics as both the methods and the policy content of responses to the crisis become exceedingly executive driven and technocratic.
