A workshop on the future of the European Union

Manolis Anagnostakis Hall, Municipality of Thessaloniki

Keynote speaker
William Valasidis
Director of Communications of the Court of Justice of the European Union

Under the aegis of the Municipality of Thessaloniki

The objective of the workshop is to stimulate discussion on broader principles and procedures of democratic governance in the EU, address the so-called EU “democratic deficit,” and engage youth in decision-making processes on a local, national, and European level.

This call is addressed to

  • University students and young professionals interested in the European Union and its future
  • High School students who would like to explore the ways in which the EU works, as well understand better such themes as citizen rights and obligations in a democratic polity

Under the direction of experts, participants will be divided into working groups to discuss specific themes (such as transparency, democracy and populism, democracy and crisis management, technology and democracy, media and democracy, electoral procedures, etc.). Each working group will assign a rapporteur to present its conclusions in a plenary session.

Working language: English (Greek for High School groups)

Certificates of attendance will be provided by the Dukakis Center.
