The #InDivEU panel at #PPCLjubljana is going LIVE 🔴 on #Zoom!

Join us over at the @tepsaeu Pre-Presidency Conference!

Below are our key highlights


First up in the panel is a keynote address from @EU_Commission Vice-Presidency @dubravkasuica, who talks about her brief in the Commission: democracy and demography

The #CoFoE is a key theme of the speech: citizens' role in shaping the #FutureofEurope is a priority of the conference, and citizens from across Europe can deliberate with each other

"The EU gives significant support to the #WesternBalkans, including EUR 30bn of investment to create sustainable growth in the region"

- @dubravkasuica describes EU external action in the Western Balkans

"This requires different solutions tailored for each regions specific needs"

- @dubravkasuica describes the EU's need for #DifferentiatedIntegration

After the intervention of @EU_Commission Vice-President @dubravkasuica, we turn to moderator @MichaelKaeding to introduce our panel composed of representative from the DiCE network

We welcome Sandra Kröger from #InDivEU, @bonomimat from @IdeaEu, and Magdalena Góra from @EU3Dh2020

Sandra Kröger from the #InDivEU project is beginning her presentation by recapping her recent conclusions on the risks and rewards of DI -> something she elaborated on in her recent #DiCEWebinar!


"There is a difference in support levels between the political right (pro-DI) and left (anti-DI), between north (pro-DI) and south (anti-DI), but among party actors, the split is more even"

- Sandra Kröger from #InDivEU

"Many party actors bring up that DI risks undermining the unity of rule of law in Europe, even without us bringing the issue up"

- and interesting report from Sandra Kröger's #InDivEU research into #DifferentiatedIntegration

Sandra Kröger from #InDivEU concludes by calling for Europe to take diverging perceptions of DI into account, by paying attention to how it is used. Democratic legitimacy and transparency are key

We now turn to @bonomimat to speak about his work on #Differentiation at @IAIonline via the @IdeaEU project

"#Brexit told us: the way the people are asked a question can affect the way they consider their answer: we should pay attention not only to how citizens respond to our questions, but also to what our questions consist of"

- @bonomimat from @IdeaEu & @IAIonline

" If the @EUCouncil is too internally divided on how to implement the will of European citizens via the #CoFoE, it is on the Member States to ensure effectiveness and accountability"

- @bonomimat from @IdeaEu & @IAIonline

We now turn to Magdalena Góra from @EU3Dh2020 and @JagiellonskiUni to give her take on "EU: Differentiation, Dominance, and Democracy"

"Our analysis demonstrates that most people debate similar issues on the #FutureofEurope, BUT the discussion on the solutions to these issues vary significantly"

- Magdalena Góra from @EU3Dh2020 & @JagiellonskiUni

"Who speaks about the #FutureofEurope? The political denomination of actors is important for this debate: eurosceptic actors and strong proponents of the EU are more active than the centre"

- Magdalena Góra from @EU3Dh2020 & @JagiellonskiUni

Magdalena Góra from @EU3Dh2020 & @JagiellonskiUni also took the time to highlight the risk of not delivering on the results of the #CoFoE: citizens' voices must be heard

On that note, we turn to a Q&A session with our participants - now is the time to get your questions in to our representatives of the DiCE constituent projects: #InDivEU, @IdeaEu, and @EU3Dh2020

We're enjoying a particularly vibrant discussion during our Q&A: questions raised include how to make #CoFoE a truly transformative tool, what representative democracy requires in a Union of 27, and much more!

Thanks to all the panellists for a great #InDivEU panel at #PPCLjubljana

@MichaelKaeding (@unidue), @dubravkasuica (@EU_Commission), Sandra Kröger (#InDivEU, @UniofExeter, & @ResearchDi), @bonomimat (@IdeaEu & @IAIonline), and Magdalena Góra (@EU3Dh2020 & @JagiellonskiUni)
