Differentiation has become a normal feature of the European integration process. Depending on the form it takes and how it relates to the overarching European Union’s system, it can be a tool for integration, a symptom of fragmentation, or simply a solution for managing diversity. Differentiation and its implications for the governance and accountability of the EU are therefore key elements to be taken into consideration in the context of the broader debate to be conducted at the Conference on the future of Europe. With a view to assess the main challenges and opportunities at stake, the Istituto Affari Internazionali organizes an online event in the framework of the EU funded Horizon 2020 project EU IDEA and in collaboration with InDivEU, EU3D and DiCE projects.
