Relaunching Europe in Bucharest : Solidarity and opportunities for an inclusive Romania
Relaunching Europe is back on the road for another lively debate on the future of Europe. On 17 February, we’ll be in Burcharest to discuss integration and equal opportunities for all citizens in Romania and around Europe.
What started as a financial crisis in 2008 quickly turned into a wider economic, social and political crisis all across Europe. Six years after, Europeans are slowly waking up from the austerity nightmare imposed on them by conservative leaders. But the social damages are overwhelming. Exclusion, racism and xenophobia – fuelled by populist and far-right movements – are spreading at a worrying pace and threaten the core principle of solidarity that has brought us together for decades.
What will it take to restore trust and solidarity? Is the European project broken? How can we best fight for exclusion and discrimination? Do we all enjoy the same opportunities? Are our differences binding us or tearing us apart? …
Join us in Bucharest as Relaunching Europe brings together citizens, leading experts, representatives of the civil society and politicians to listen to what you have to say about a more inclusive Romania, a more united Europe.
The discussion will be moderated by Claudiu LUCACI, News Director of the Romanian National television.
