La Pietra Dialogues – EU in Focus: What is the EU? Why does it matter?
Prof. Nicolò Conti, NYU Florence

Who makes decisions in the European Union? And who holds the legislative, executive and judiciary power within this supranational entity? Why are the European citizens increasingly unhappy with the EU? Is it a sign of a democratic deficit within the EU? Professor Nicolò Conti will address these questions and discuss the EU political system and decision-making processes.
