Event Description

Fighting for Democracy - #EuropeTogether.
 
25 years have passed since the Copenhagen Criteria were agreed upon. These rules determine the eligibility for EU membership based on, among other criteria, the preservation of democratic values.
25 years on we are coming back to where it all started. Two of our distinguished speakers were in office at the moment the Copenhagen Criteria were adopted. The two panel debates at this event will focus on guaranteeing democracy in Europe today and standing up for your democracy, both with clear calls for actions from citizens.
The event will start at 17:00 (doors open at 16:30) and will be followed by a reception at 20:30.
We’ll have the pleasure to welcome, among other guest speakers:
Felipe Gónzalez, former Prime Minister of Spain
Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, former Prime Minister of Denmark, former PES President and former Member of the European Parliament
Udo Bullmann, MEP, President of the S&D Group
Jeppe Kofod, MEP, Vice-President of the S&D Group
Mette Frederiksen, Party Leader of Socialdemokratiet in Denmark
Enrique Guerrero Salom, MEP, S&D Group, European Parliament
Josef Weidenholzer, MEP, S&D Group, European Parliament
Tuulia Pitkänen, Secretary General of Young European Socialists
Tamás Boros, Member of FEPS Scientific Council
Ivan Krastev, Chairman of the Centre for Liberal Strategies
Maria Skora, Senior Project Manager for #DialogueOnEurope, Das Progressive Zentrum, Germany
Yascha Mounk, Lecturer on Government at Harvard University
Frederik Vad, President of the Young Danish Social Democrats
 
More speakers will be announced soon.
