O Captain My Captain – Juncker’s State Of The Union

Among EU observers, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union speech was highly anticipated and widely expected to be more visionary and personal than in previous years.

In this snapshot, we give an overview of the key elements of the speech and discuss whether it  fulfilled  expectations.
