Arras, 16 November 2018 – European challenges 2018: being European, history, culture and citizenship


14:30 > 17:45

The Mouvement européen of Pas-de-Calais organizes a public meeting on European identity. Daniel Debomy, associate research fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, participates.

The event takes place in two stages: first of all the interventions of experts then testimonies of citizens.

Daniel Debomy intervenes on the state of play of the adhesion (or euroscepticism) of the Europeans. The polls (Eurobarometer in particular), qualitative opinion studies and electoral results, provide information on the level of Europeans’ adherence to the united Europe, the euro and EU policies. Where are the accession or the rejection of the European Union in the different European countries? What significant developments can be observed in this respect? Can we distinguish reasons based on geography and recent history?

The meeting is moderated by Quentin Dickinson, Director of European Affairs of Radio France.

Admission is free, registration recommended with the European Movement Pas-de-Calais.
