This Executive Training Seminar, organized by the School of Transnational Governance, offers a unique opportunity to reflect on the issue of “European Democracy” from both academic and policy perspectives. At a time when there are several decisions to make following the European Commission’s White Paper on addressing the immediate requirements to complete the institutional design of the Eurozone, the seminar aims to shed light on how to make the European Union more democratic.

The debate will start from strategic questions on Democracy: does Democracy only exist when individuals obey laws of which - with all the institutional mediation that is present in a complex society - they are the authors? Is it possible to insist on such authorship in complex political systems?

The aim of the seminar is to create a space for joint reflection, in which senior practitioners, academics and high level institutional officials share and debate ideas with an informed audience. The participants will exchange views and experiences with Members of the European Parliament, and especially with those belonging to the Committee on Constitutional Affairs.

Participation is by application only. (Deadline 26 March)

Fees: 1,300 € (10% reduction for early registrations)

A discount of 25% will be applied to the charges for international European and national civil servants, as well as to members of the NGOs.

Full or partial fee-waivers will be available on merit or needs basis.

The fees cover the cost of the course as well as coffee and lunch breaks. Travel and hotel costs are not included in the fees.
