Bertelsman Stiftung is pleased to invite you to the fourth edition of Conference Conversations, an interactive, online talk show that tackles key issues and questions related to the Conference on the Future of Europe in the framework of our Conference Observatory project.
Following the launch of the first sessions of the Conference’s European Citizens’ Panels, this edition of Conference Conversations will focus on the potential political ramifications and consequences of the Conference, particularly on the future of democracy, both at the EU level and beyond. These Panels are a central aspect of the Conference activities and serve to connect citizens with the EU institutions by allowing randomly selected citizens to directly participate in the debate on the future of Europe.
Conference Conversations is part of the Conference Observatory, a joint initiative by an international consortium comprising the Bertelsmann Stiftung, the European Policy Centre, the King Baudouin Foundation, and the Stiftung Mercator. The Conference Observatory aims to observe, critically analyse and inspire the Conference deliberations. Based on the lessons learned, the initiative will also develop proposals aiming to improve the EU’s future participatory and democratic architecture.
