Europa spricht – Let’s talk about Europe
——————————————————
Talks and discussion
Project presentation #myeurope

The European elections are coming up. But do we even know what kind of institution this is, the composition of which we will determine anew between 24 and 26 May? Which functions does the European Parliament fulfil in the EU institutional complex and how did the European Parliament become what it is today?

Talks:
Katharina Meissner and Magnus Schöller are postdocs at the Centre for European Integration Research. In their talk they will present excerpts from their book “European Parliament Ascendant – Parliamentary Strategies of Self-Empowerment in the EU”, in which, together with their co-authors, they illuminate the strengthening of the European Parliament in the EU institutional complex.

Nikolaus Kandolf is a PhD student of physics and alumni of Club Alpbach Senza Confini. Over the course of the past year he has immersed himself in the European legislative process and the workings of the EU institutions. In his keynote lecture, Nikolaus will present an overview of European legislation and interesting facts around the upcoming European elections.

#myeurope – Project presentation:
The Forum Alpbach Network has set itself the goal to contribute to the discussion surrounding the upcoming European elections. We therefore created the video project #myeurope with which numerous voices from all over Europe are collected and spread over the channels of the network.

When do we think about Europe?
When about politics?
What is important to us about Europe?
How is the future of Europe talked about?

#myeurope offers a pan-European perspective and creates awareness for a common Europe based on solidarity.
