In the context of the economic, social and democratic crisis the EU has been facing since 2008, the May 2014 European elections are crucial, since they will determine les European institutions which will frame the after-crisis EU. They give us the opportunity of an enlightening debate about the new perspectives and political objectives to be defined.
It is also because the financial, economic and democratic challenges of these elections will be clearly perceptible , that the French and European citizens will be able to fully be involved in it. In this perspective, Notre Europe Jacques Delors Institute,Terra Nova and Centre d’Etudes Européennes de Science Po propose a series of three public conferences about the after-crisis European Union, around three major concerns : the financial crisis consequences ; the economic and social challenges ; and the democratic future of the European Union. This conferences will allow European representatives to draw their analysis and recommendations about those topics by answering both experts and citizens questions.
