The European Parliament,
Heart of European Democracy?
9th May 2018
it is a great pleasure to invite you for the conference Europe Day. The European Parliament, Heart of European Democracy? which will take place on Wednesday, 9th May 2018 at the Centrum Nauki Kopernik, Warsaw.
The aim of the conference is to explore in-depth and exhaustively the issue of liberal democracy and the role of European Parliament just year ahead of the European elections. In this context, the participants of the conference will discuss the future of Europe.
In 2018 14 years will pass since the Polish entry into the European Union. For Poland the date of 1 May 2004 is the culmination of a transformation process launched at the end of the Cold War in 1989.
Today, Poland is locked in various disputes with European Union institutions it’s position in EU has weakened. It doesn’t mean that we should neglect the discussion of the future of Europe. We want to encourage the debate, engage the government, local and regional authorities and civil society.
The conference gathers politicians, academics, experts to explore the latest and the most pressing topics shaping European future. The event aims to promote, inform and contribute to debate on the democratic nature of European institution on different levels.
Sessions will explore the importance of rule of law which is a fundamental value upon which the EU is based on.
The conference is organized by In.Europa Institute, Fondation Robert Schuman, European Parliament, City of Warsaw, Konrad Adenauer Foundation and Genshagen Foundation. The event is a part of the project supported by the European Parliament “The European Parliament, Heart of European Democracy?” which aims to increase awareness of European Union, democracy and the role of European Parliament.
Along with In.Europa Partners, I very much hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you on the 9th May in Warsaw!
