  Add to Calendar 2018-04-26 9:00 2018-04-28 14:30 Europe/Paris Is the EU Democratic Enough? Measuring the Health of EU Democracy

Democracy only exists when individuals obey laws of which - with all the institutional mediation that is present in a complex society - they are the authors. The transition from technocratic simplicity to techno-populist complexity poses specific problems related to both government and legitimacy in the European Union.

This Executive Training Seminar offers a unique opportunity for participants to create a “toolkit” with which to measure EU democracy and assess how it can be improved. During the seminar , speakers and participants will share their professional skills and experiences, and work in practical training sessions to trigger debate on and propose how to concretely make the EU more democratic.

Moreover participants are called to work on case studies on different kinds of fake news: during the practical laboratory they are guided by an expert on how to recognise them, on assessing their potential impact and on reflecting on their implications related to Democracy.

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.
