A Toolbox for the EU to Safeguard Democracy in Member States

The European Union’s fundamental values have come under pressure in several member states. Recently, EU institutions have shown more commitment to defending fundamental values and EU interventions have garnered more support among member states, yet, to this day, the available instruments have proven insufficient.

Join us in a discussion on how the EU should safeguard and promote democracy in its member states. The seminar will start with a presentation of the very concrete suggestions made in the publication “The Other Democratic Deficit - A Toolbox for the EU to Safeguard Democracy in Member States” by a FES Expert Group of recognized experts from politics, civil society and academia.

Confirmed Participants:

Juliane Schulte, Expert at the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation's Department for Central and Eastern Europe

Anna Rogalska Hedlund, Lawyer Specialized in Human Rights at Sieps

Maja Åberg, Policy Advisor at Amnesty International

Linus Gazelius, Policy Advisor to the Former Minister for European Union Affairs and Trade, Ann Linde

Moderator: Lisa Pelling, Chief Analyst of the Think Tank Arena Idé

Coffee and a lunch sandwich will be available from 11.30. The event will be finished at 13.00.
