Events

On Thursday, 12.04. the second dialogue of the series Europe yes, but how? took place in the ProLi cinema in Passau. After the discussion in Aachen on the introduction of a European association law, the European Democracy Lab in cooperation with the Jusos Passau and Gemeinsam leben und lernen in Europa e.V. presented models for a Europe-wide social system.

The first event of the Project Europe yes, but how? took place on the 12th of February 2019 in Aachen. Together with We Are Europe we invited to Forum M to discuss about the potential of a European associations statute.

On 23 and 24 January 2019, REGIOPARL will be officially kicked off with a conference at Danube University Krems.
The goal is to reflect on the various academic debates on regions and regional governance in the EU, from multi-level parliamentarism to regional development, and from regional autonomy to populism.

The rule of law, sexual freedom, gender equality, free trade. Norms that seemed fundamental are being put into question. The backlash against a rule-based international system and free societies is not just occurring in the West but throughout the world. Has market centrism and increasing inequality left too many people behind?

Have we made any progress in fighting inequality, sexism, racism, and other exclusionary tendencies? When did we lose track of striving towards ever fairer societies and economies that value equality, freedom and the rule of law?

A series of talks between research and activism on the role of the economy, the state, and gender in times of resurgent nationalism.

March For A New Europe – All Aboard!

On 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom announced its decision to leave the EU. For nationalists and populists, it’s become a day of celebration. But now it’s our turn! We refuse to be silenced on that day of all days. We’re going to speak up loud and clear for our idea of a new Europe!

We stand firm against backwards, nationalist, and fact-denying politics: the kind that’s symbolised by the red bus of the Leave campaign 🇬🇧🚗🚌. We’re putting our foot down. We’ve got bags of concrete proposals that will signpost the way to a democratic, sustainable, supportive Europe!

Join us for an event to celebrate the publication of DISCO SOUR, a speculative fiction novel from Giuseppe Porcaro, published by Unbound.

Giuseppe Porcaro will be in conversation with Ulrike Guérot, founder and director of the European Democracy Lab. The conversation will be followed by music, drinks and book signing.

Im April 2018 veranstalteten das European Democracy Lab, die Heinrich Böll Stiftung Baden-Württemberg und die Katholische Akademie in Freiburg erstmalig ein zweitägiges interdisziplinäres Symposium, in dessen Verlauf jeweils ein zukunftsweisender Vorschlag zur Zukunft des Projekts Europa diskutiert wird.

A wide debate on the future of Europe is taking place, at a time of multiple challenges for the European integration. At the same time, we see the striking calls for greater autonomy or even independence by several regions in Europe, an intensified regional lobbying, transnational regional cooperation and macro-regional strategies. These developments illustrate the need to discuss what role the regions could and should play in the future EU27.
