EU’s post-elections trajectory: What role for citizens and civil society?

EU’s post-elections trajectory: What role for citizens and civil society?

In the aftermath of the European elections of 6-9 June and with the new leadership already taking shape, this in-person Policy Dialogue will unpack the EU’s future trajectory and its expected political, institutional, and societal implications for the Union and its citizens. While Europe continues to face a poly-crisis and poly-transition that call for ambitious and difficult choices across policy areas (e.g. from climate change and defence to new technologies and economic pressures), citizens’ engagement and contribution remains underutilised. What should be the main priorities of the next Commission? Why and how should citizens’ participation help in the setting and formulation of the upcoming EU policy and reform agenda? What role should civil society play in that same process?
The panel will address these and other related questions. The event will also feature a short presentation of the results of the EUact2 project, “Towards a democratic and inclusive Europe – EP elections and active citizens’ participation and contribution”, funded by the European Union.
Antonella Valmorbida, ALDA Secretary General, will be among the speakers. More info here.
Participation is open to EPC members, media, and EU officials
