Hotel Westin Excelsior, Venice Lido April 15-17, 2005 The Aspen Institute's debate on Europe is in its thirteenth year: these many meetings have represented an ongoing attempt to deal with the key issues facing decision-makers in the Union's economic, social and political integration process. Apart from dealing with the introduction of the euro, the Aspen European Dialogue conferences have focussed on enlargement, institutional reform and economic governance. Participants have also considered the EU's role as an international player and the necessary, if delicate, balance between opening up to the East and relations with southern neighbors. Finally, the spotlight has been turned on crucial issues such as social cohesion, economic growth, demographic trends and welfare reform as well. Aspen is now organizing a conference on Union and disunion: Europe in 2015. Emma Bonino will chair the third session on Turkey and European Union. Program Friday, April 15 P.m.
