Time to declare a state of democracy!
The European Civic Forum is organising, in partnership with European Alternatives, a public debate in Brussels on 18 February 2016 (11:00 – 12:30) “Time to declare a state of Democracy!” This event comes at a time in which fundamental rights and the European Union’s founding principles of human dignity, freedom, democracy, respect for human rights, solidarity, non-discrimination, and equality are at the centre of the debate all across Europe. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance and justice prevail. Article 2 has a prominent place in the EU treaties, yet a vast gap exists between these rights and values and their exercise and implementation. Registrations are open.
