Public Debates – 2020

The IEP organises “Public Debates” on key topics of the current agenda of European politics. It invites distin­guished speakers and other experts from academia, government and admin­is­tration of member states and EU insti­tu­tions to talk about challenges and perspec­tives of European integration. These issues are discussed in a forum where people inter­ested in the devel­opment of European integration from academia, politics, media, pressure groups, embassies and non-govern­mental organ­i­sa­tions meet. Through its Public Debates the IEP fulfils one of its major aims as think tank to promote the discourse on EU topics and encourage exchange between policy-makers, academics, journalists and citizens.
