Public discussion on small EU states
Members of the European Parliament Simon Busuttil and Edward Scicluna will take part in a public discussion on the institutional, political and economic aspects of the small states of the EU on Friday.
They will discuss the voting power of Malta, Cyprus, Estonia, Slovenia and Luxembourg in the EU decision-making process, the problems these states face when hosting the EU presidency, their economic structures and constraints compared to larger member states. Following the two speakers’ presentations the discussion will be open to the floor.
The event is being organised by the University’s Islands and Small States Institute as part of the Discover University activities from 1pm to 2 in the Pavilion on the University campus. It will be chaired by Lino Briguglio.
