Can the New EU Commission Save Europe? 

The European Commission is viewed historically as the motor of European integration, but is portrayed frequently as technocratic, monolithic, and unaccountable. Drs. Connolly and Kassim will discuss the development of the Commission in light of its new membership, which was approved by the European Parliament this month, and the ongoing economic difficulties in the EU. Dr. Connolly is Reader in Personnel Economics at the Norwich Business School and Director of the Diversity and Equality in Careers and Employment Research Centre at the University of East Anglia and Dr. Kassim is Professor in the Department of Political, Social and International Studies at the University of East Anglia.  They are co-authors of The European Commission of the Twenty-First Century (Oxford University Press, 2013).
