Last two years were arguably the most challenging times for the project of united Europe. A multitude of crises had encouraged the rise of populism and nationalistic rhetoric which is ever more vocal. On the other hand, year 2017 already featured some significant signs of relief for euro-optimists, like the election of President Macron, defeat of populists in the Netherlands or Austria. Faced with the challenge of Brexit, leaders in Brussels and in capitals proved more than capable to find a united voice. In addition, the European Commission, under President Juncker have presented their ambitious vision of the model of the Union. Debates about the future of Europe had been the crucial ingredient of the Slovak Presidency of the European Council and have stayed on the top of the agenda on high level meetings and international conferences. Politicians all over Europe are on the quest to boost optimism and reinvigorate the trust of people in European project. Will 2017 represent a turning point for Europe? How will we create smarter institutions, leaner and more effective Europe while keeping it united?
