On May 23 are the Elections for the European Parliament. Europe is from all of us, but who is representing the democracy in Brussel? May 20, in Pakhuis de Zwijger Daniël Mügge, Liza Saris, Sophie Bloemen and John Grin will discuss Democracy in Europe.

On May 23 are the Elections for the European Parliament. Europe is from all of us, but who is representing the democracy in Brussel? Who looks at the city, sees the offices of big companies and banks around the political heart of the EU.  What does this mean for the power balance in Europe?
During this evening we will dive deeper into the European Project. In what ways is the European Union able to protect the interests of all the citizens in Europe? Together with scientists and grassroots organisations will we discuss an alternative vision for Europe. Which ideology can take over? In what ways does this demand a rethinking of our current economic system? And last but not least, is more democracy the answer and what is necessary in order to make Europe more democratic?

This evening is organised together with the Commons Network and Netwerk Democratie. Daniël Mügge, Liza Saris, Sophie Bloemen and John Grin will discuss Democracy in Europe, how an alternative EU could look like and what we need to achieve that.
