Chatham House hosted this conference "Europe, the next fifty years" to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Treaty Of Rome on 22 March in London. Policy Network's latest pamphlet, written by Peter Mandelson titled "The European Union in the Global Age" was launched at this event.

The conference discussed the key achievements, as well as the key challenges facing the European Union over the next fifty years. Other participants in the conference included Geoff Hoon MP (Minister for Europe), Kenneth Clark MP (former Chancellor of the Exchequer), Charles Kennedy (former leader of the Liberal Democrats), Wolfgang Ischinger (German Ambassador to the United Kingdom) and Philip Stevens (Financial Times).

The conference included a short performance by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (COE). In 2006, the COE celebrated its Silver Jubilee. It was founded in 1981 by 38 young European musicians who wanted to build on their experience of European cooperation. The COE now brings together some of the best professional musicians from fifteen different European nationalities.
