The State of the Union: Is the EU steering down the right path?
Date created :
"Making our imperfect union ever more perfect": that was the stated aim of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, as he delivered his final State of the Union address to MEPs on September 12. Amid his pledges were plans for an additional 10,000 European border guards; boosting the EU's standing as a foreign policy power; cracking down on money laundering; bringing in new laws against election manipulation - and much more.
After Juncker laid out his vision for his final year in the job - and the long-term future of the EU - we’re asking whether he hit the right notes, and in which direction Europe is heading.
