Towards a European Federation of Nation States

Towards a European federation of nation states
In the aftermath of popular uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, and as Europe emerges from economic and monetary turmoil, the EPP Group chose Malta as the venue for a meeting to discuss challenges being faced by Mediterranean countries. The first day of the meeting started with the Monetary and Economic Union and how this could bring the EU closer to a Federation of Nation States. The Greek Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, and the Maltese Prime Minister, Lawrence Gonzi, delivered keynote speeches on this topic. Available material includes an edited package with soundbites.
