#EuropeTogether : Defending the Rule of Law

Our Europe TOGETHER journey will take us to Vienna on 11 October to debate with you how Europe can best defend the Rule of Law when it is under threat. Populist and right-wing movements all around Europe are challenging the core foundations of our democracies. For the first time in EU history, two member states have been singled out for breaching the fundamental laws that hold this Union together. Let’s defend #EuropeTogether!

The event will start at 18:00 (doors open at 17:30) and will be followed by a reception at 20:15.

We’ll have the pleasure to welcome among other guest speakers:

Udo Bullmann, President of the S&D Group, European Parliament

Sergei Stanishev, S&D MEP, European Parliament and PES President

Christian Kern, SPÖ

Ágnes Heller, Philosopher, Hungary

Zita Gurmai, President PES Women

Josef Weidenholzer, Vice-President of the S&D Group, European Parliament

More speakers will be announced soon.

Our moderator for the night will be Susanne Pollinger.
