About the Reflections on the Future of Europe series
Reflections on the Future of Europe is designed to give leading international experts in the fields of European democracy, citizenship and identity the opportunity to come together.
The idea of the series is to present and discuss new work in these areas which touches on the future of Europe debate and the well-being of citizens.
A key component of the series will be the interaciton with the public though social media immediately after each discussion and between one event and the next.
About Europe Future Fringe
Europe Future Fringe is an open access festival of democracy where everyone who wants to be part of the conversation about the future of Europe can find a space to tell their story.
The idea is for Europe Future Fringe to spark a conversation about the future of Europe, to energise the debate about what happens next. Too often the discussion about Europe is located in formal institutional settings, out of reach of the citizens.
We want Europe Future Fringe to open up the debate about Europe in all the spaces in between.
