It is in the framework of a project, carried out under the patronage of the Hippocrene Foundation and the Evens Foundation that the conference, “What is the European Union doing for its citizens?”, is organized in partnership with the Jacques Delors Institute in order to identify the objectives, impact, and perspectives of the development of European engagement with its citizens in the areas of protection of personal data, consumer protection (notably within the debates around TTIP), and environmental protection.

At a time when the European Union seems to leave more and more of its citizens indifferent or even skeptical towards it, five students from Sciences Po’s Master in European Affairs gather around a collective project with the goal of assuring the positive, constructive, and applicable treatment of the theme “How approach to a Europe of Citizens”. The collective project, titled “The European institutions citizen innovation award”, aims at identifying, promoting, and awarding the engines of European citizenship put into place by the European institutions to better take into account the interests of European citizens.
You can find more information on this event as well as on the Prix de l’innovation citoyenne.
