The European Union is going through crucial times. After a long period of economic, political and social crises, which have exposed the structural inadequacies of the European construction, and have fed populist movements and triggered nationalist revivals all over our continent, the European Union is gradually recovering and a new willingness to bring about a substantial change in the process of European integration seems to be emerging.
Progressive forces must take the lead of this process, promote a progressive way forward, shape the road-map before the European elections and produce a positive and pro-European breakthrough. With this in mind, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies is promoting a wide discussion within the framework of the 2017 PES Council to debate with high-level speakers on the most pressing decisions that the EU is going to make in the close future, namely on the reform of the EMU, Europe’s social dimension, the question of the realisation of the SDGs, the need to address the issue of the management of migration flows and of the integration of migrants in our societies, and, last but not least, that of the strengthening of European democracy.
In order to favour the dialogue with the audience, the speakers will deliver only brief statements aimed at providing some food for thought.
The Foundation for European Progressive Studies in cooperation with the Fondazione Pietro Nenni will launch on October 26 in Rome (10h30, Sede Confederale della UIL, vial Lucullo 6) the second edition of the cycle of training Go Beyond, that this year will focus on democracy, culture, cohesion... learn more
