REGIOPARL aims at gaining, documenting and publicly distributing a better understanding of the instruments, limits and potentials of the regional level as a bearer of European democracy. REGIOPARL wishes to systematically study, contextualize and explain the role of regional polities in European integration and thereby propose convincing solutions to the institutional and democratic challenges Europe is facing.
The project was designed as a series of interviews with national deputies of Eurozone member states, with the aim of collecting their ideas about the state of European democracy as well as their views on the similarities and differences between the national and European level.
Europe is at a crossroads and the many people who work on shaping and changing it are travelling extensively across the continent – usually without even having the time to talk to local experts, citizens and other like-minded Europeans. In four different workshops, the European Democracy Lab has gathered smart und creative people together to exchange innovative Ideas for a new Europe.
