REFLECTION PAPER ON HARNESSING GLOBALISATION

1. This Explanatory Memorandum (EM) relates to the European Commission’s ‘Reflection Paper on Harnessing Globalisation’. The paper is the second in a series of five papers on themes the Commission believes will define the coming years for Europe. It follows the Commission’s White Paper on the future of Europe which was presented on 1 March 2017 and intended as the starting point for a wide ranging debate on the Union’s future. It argues that “Now is … the time to consider what the EU can do to shape globalisation in line with our shared interests and values.”
