As agreed at the informal meeting of 27 Heads of State or Government and the Presidents of the European Council and European Commission held on 29 June 2016, EU leaders met to diagnose the present state of the European Union and discuss the EU-27’s common future without the UK. The Bratislava meeting was, in the view of Peter Ludlow, not about the EU and Britain, but about the EU without Britain. The meeting resulted in the ‘Bratislava Declaration’, which spells out the key priorities of the EU – 27 for the next six months and proposes concrete measures to achieve them, the main ones relating to: 1) migration, 2) internal and external security, and 3) economic and social development, including youth. These topics were already outlined in advance by European Council President, Donald Tusk, and generally reflect the issues which most concern European citizens.
