200 committed Europeans come together for one weekend to discuss the question of justice in the European Union from multiple perspectives and develop ideas for the future.
The registration process is open until 03 June 2018: conference-witten.eu/registration
MORE JUSTICE, MORE EUROPE?
Pioneering EU decisions mostly mean walking the tightrope between national autonomy and intra-European solidarity. Where does this walk lead with respect to company taxation, EU decision-making processes or the allocation of the EU budget? These are questions related to justice that can only be addressed from a European perspective. Together with renowned experts, we seek to find answers.
The conference aims to create an opportunity to get together and discuss the EU, instead of each country discussing it separately. This is why we kindly invite 200 students, young professionals and activists from all European countries to create a shared vision of a more equitable EU. The views and experiences of all participants shall be gathered, exchanged and translated into action.
Keynote speeches, interactive discussion forums and workshops form the core of the conference and invite participants to exchange ideas and develop visions of a future Europe.
Various activities for getting to know each other during social gatherings in the evening complete the three-day outline programme at Witten/Herdecke University.
A detailed programme will be announced soon!
ORGANIZATION: STUDENT TEAM
A team of nine students from Witten/Herdecke University organises the conference. We are students of the interdisciplinary Philosophy, Politics and Economics programme, and it is our belief that innovations are essential to the project of European unity. Therefore, we have worked together since summer 2017 to provide a framework for analysing and discussing justice in the EU with our fellow European citizens.
