Seminar 14 June: The European Commission at half-time: What has been achieved?

When Jean-Claude Juncker took over the presidency of the European Commission in November 2014, he promised a "more political" and less technocratic Commission during the forthcoming term of office. Halfway into the term it is time for a health check. What has the Juncker Commission actually accomplished and is it really "more political"?
