Media Partnership - Democracy and Resilience in the Era of European crises


Media Partnership - Democracy and Resilience in the Era of European crises


This is a Hybrid event. Information on how to attend the event online will follow after registration.

Liberal democratic values have never been put under a more significant systemic series of tests. The concurrent dynamics of pandemics gradually turned into infodemics, domestic populism and destabilization campaigns, arbitrarily introduced and inconsistently legitimized emergency states, and rising revisionism of great powers all point to one thing. It is of the utmost importance to cultivate academic discourse on democracy and resilience. That's all the more true within the European context, with the European Union trying to assert its significance, legitimacy, identity, and common future.

This workshop brings together a series of renowned experts who will tackle these issues and the key enabling platforms – public as well as private. The key issues that will be addressed include fighting disinformation, the role of regulation, education/health/resilience nexus, and the significance of democratic cornerstones such as elections.
