What is Debates on Europe
Since its inception in 2012, the series Debates on Europe has been hosted in places where the idea of Europe is at stake. In international discussion forums organized in cooperation with local actors – mainly in eastern and south-eastern Europe – it addresses the most pressing issues on the European agenda. By supporting civil society in places where this is still emerging or under pressure it furthers free and open debate on cultural, social and political issues.
