The Treaty of Rome 60 years on: are the founding fathers still relevant to today?

60 years ago this month 6 European governments signed the treaty of Rome which created the EEC and Euratom. This was the forerunner of today’s European Union. As the UK prepares to leave the EU and we witness varieties euroscepticism across Europe, was the original conception of European integration misconceived from the start? Other lessons to be drawn from today?
