Fighting for Democracy - #EuropeTogether.

25 years have passed since the Copenhagen Criteria were agreed upon. These rules determine the eligibility for EU membership based on, among other criteria, the preservation of democratic values.

25 years on we are coming back to where it all started. Two of our distinguished speakers were in office at the moment the Copenhagen Criteria were adopted. The two panel debates at this event will focus on guaranteeing democracy in Europe today and standing up for your democracy, both with clear calls for actions from citizens.

The event will start at 17:00 (doors open at 16:30) and will be followed by a reception at 20:30.

Felipe Gónzalez, former Prime Minister of Spain
