The MPC participates in the State of the Union conference, which is an annual event for high-level reflection on the European Union (EU), organised by the European University Institute in Florence. It has become, in recent years, an important event in the EU calendar for policy-makers, civil-society representatives, business, opinion leaders and academics.

In 2017, The State of the Union, under the title Building a People’s Europe, will revolve around the theme of European Citizenship, a multi-faceted topic of acute relevance across all EU member states. Sessions will deal with the future of citizenship; direct democracy and populism; the impact of the global refugee emergency on Europe; the financial crisis, the free movement of persons and the labour market; and security, in a broad sense of the word. MPC Director Andrew Geddes will be a speaker in a session addressing a topical question: Free Movement vs. Social Solidarity: Does EU Citizenship Undermine European Welfare States?
