Federico Romero

‘Progress is never linear, much less granted once and for all.’ Professor Federico Romero uses the Treaty of Rome Anniversary to reconsider how the EC/EU ‘nurtured – inadvertently, myopically, smugly – the frustrated discontent that now threatens it.’

Professor Federico Romero is Professor of History of Post-War European Cooperation and Integration at the European University Institute. He is also Director of the ERC project Looking West: The European Socialist Regimes Facing Pan-European Cooperation and the European Community (PanEur1970s), and co-directs the Alcide de Gasperi Centre for Research. He will chair a debate on ‘The European Union at Sixty’ at The State of the Union. 4-6th May 2017.
