Brussels for Breakfast (133): EU Regulatory Issues
A breakfast discussion on EU regulatory issues
October 17, 2017



  • Graham Bishop (independent consultant,

  • Michael Sholem (Davis Polk)

It has been a busy few weeks.  On the one hand, Macron’s much-trailed speech at the Sorbonne painted a picture of ever-closer European union (post-Brexit), with a common Treasury, a eurozone finance minister and even the much-maligned FTT binding North and South together.  On the other hand, the German elections gave the integrationist camp a nasty shock, what with the (avowedly anti-European) AfD doing considerably better than expected and the (lukewarm) FDP likely to form a key part of Merkel’s new coalition.  And then there’s Catalonia – and Madrid’s ham-fisted attempt to crush separatist sentiment.  Plus, the growth of a nationalist backlash in Central Europe continues – and now threatens to spill over to the Czech Republic. 

The event will be held on October 17, 2017, in London, 8:30-10:00am.
