Leander Cingöz:

“When I started my bachelor’s degree in European Studies in 2011, the EU was facing some of the most difficult economic and political challenges in its history. By 2016, it seemed that the future of European integration was becoming bleaker, with Brexit, the rise of nationalism across European countries and political unrest in the Union’s neighbourhood serving as tools for Eurosceptics to declare the decay of European integration. 2017, however, proved to be year of renewed optimism and a prevalence of pro-EU forces across several Member States. Notwithstanding these developments, the challenges the EU faces today are likely to shape the Union’s future, for better or worse.
It is clear that, in order to weather these storms, the European integration project will need to find new impetus. The Commission’s White Paper on the Future of Europe offers several prospects on how to continue from here and address these issues. Are we aiming for a multi-speed Europe? What roles must the Commission and Parliament obtain? What will be the role of those excluded from Europe’s ‘core’ states? All these are questions which are set to provide for an interesting exchange of views and visions.
In just one year, the 2016-2017 EUSA board has achieved significant success in turning a young association into an established platform for students wishing to discuss EU politics. As the new President, I wish to build upon this success and continue to offer students the opportunity to express their views. The coming months already provide ground for interesting discussions. From September’s State of the Union speech by Commission President Juncker to, as the latest UK elections have shown, even more complicated Brexit negotiations, I welcome everyone to join our events, take part in debates and, of course, enjoy a drink in good company!
A lot of interesting opportunities lie ahead which, as a President, I will not be able to seize alone. A team of visionary and creative minds is necessary to pursue the association’s success and mission. I am therefore looking forward to working together with students from different academic disciplines and with different political interests and ensure a continuous progress of EUSA and its activities.”
