In December 2015, a new global agreement to fight climate change is to be adopted at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Paris. Negotiations on this Paris agreement approach another major milestone at this year’s 20th Conference of the Parties in Lima in December when elements of a negotiating text should be agreed upon. A full negotiating text is then to appear during the first half of 2015, when countries are also expected to put forward their own “intended nationally determined contributions” to global climate protection.

What are/should be the core objectives of the EU for the 2015 Paris agreement given the state of international discussions? What should and can the Paris agreement deliver? What would be required for the EU to play a productive leadership role in the negotiations towards Paris? These are some of the core questions this webinar will explore, touching upon both EU domestic politics and the international context.

Stabilising the financial markets remains a key challenge for the new Commission, which is set out to start its work in November. A reformed financial sector would help in restoring growth and steering the EU out of the economic crisis. A Banking Union with a Single Supervisory Mechanism for banks is a key part of the reform agenda. 


Do join us in exploring these and other developments in the European internal market and financial services at the IES Inaugural Lecture, delivered by a leading authority, Prof. Em. Jonathan Faull, Director General (DG Internal Market and Services).
