After thirteen “analogue” Debates, Debates on Europe is due to the Covid-19 pandemic moving into the digital sphere. Under the title Debates Digital: Text & Talks, we will publish a series of essays by some of the outstanding writers, scholars and public intellectuals who are part of the Debates on Europe network. These publications will be accompanied by live discussions between the authors to be streamed on our YouTube channel.
We invite you to join #DebatesDigital and follow our events online!

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.
