With the participation of MEP Ana Miranda, the World Network for Collective Rights of People with the Centre Maurits Coppieters organises a seminar at the European Parliament in Brussels on the subject of self-determination and new governance models.

The seminar will feature speakers from Quebec, Catalonia, the Basque Country, Kabylia and Kurdistan who will look at new possibilities for self-determination in the context of democratic governance and collective rights. They aim at finding alternative solutions to the challenges posed by the radical changes of the international scene at political, social and economic level.

The seminar aims to bring together those fighting for self-determination to share ideas and experiences and look at new opportunities that present themselves.

This press conference will give an overview of the seminar and its key themes.
