The Future of Democracy in EU Member States
Wednesday, February 24, 20219:30 am – 10:30 am EST/GMT-5
The Open Society University Network and the CEU Democracy Institute cordially invite all OSUN members to an online event on "The Future of Democracy in EU Member States."
Debates on the state of democracy in EU Member States have been intensifying and attacks against the rule of law have regularly been occurring. Both authoritarian incumbents and their opponents try to use elements of the international legal and political framework for or against de-democratization.
In this debate Věra Jourová, Vice-President of the European Commission; Clément Beaune, Secretary of State for European affairs in the French government; and Michal Šimečka, MEP and Vice-Chair of the Renew Europe Group will address the question of how to strengthen democracy on the national level, integrating the political and legal aspects of the problem. The discussion will be moderated by R. Daniel Kelemen, Professor of Political Science and Law and Jean Monnet Chair in European Union Politics at Rutgers University. Opening remarks will be delivered by Dimitry Kochenov (CEU Democracy Institute).
