News

Published: 16May2019

Between 23 and 26 May 2019, the EU’s citizens will elect a new European Parliament. Polls are showing a rise of euroskeptic but also green parties in most countries, while the party groups that are traditionally best represented in the European Parliament seem to be on the losing end.

To discuss the election, a public forum will be held with four EU experts who will discuss the current key issues of EU integration and engage in an open debate with the event’s participants.

For interviews:
