Challenges to democracy - Looking past 2018

Aid and Development
Date: Friday, 04 May 2018 09:00 - 10:30

Venue: European Economic and Social Committee  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

Democracy governance is one of the founding values of the European Union and has played a jey role in accession criteria to the Union, also featruing as one of the principles of EU foreign policy in the Lisbon Treaty (Art 21). Yet today the position of the EU as a global normative power is being questioned while democratic governance is under attack in Europe and in other areas of the world. 

The European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) will organise a panel discussion on "Challenges to democracy: looking past 2018" on the 4th of May from 9h00 to 10h30. The panel will look at the key challenges for supporters of democracy and what can be done to assist representative democracy around the world. 

EPD has embarked upon a review process of European democracy support that will culminate in the publication of a paper in mid 2019. The review is neither a meta-analysis of where democracy stands globally nor an evaluation of specific democracy programmes. It falls between the two in an attempt to take stock of where democracy support stands 10 years after all EU member states agreed to an EU Agenda for Action on Democracy Support in the EU's External Relations. This panel discussion forms part of a series of events part of the review process.
