Paris, 15 April 2016 – What is the EU doing for its citizens?
The Jacques Delors Institute organises, in partnership with the Foundations Evens and Hippocrène, the conference “What is the EU doing for its citizens?” in order to identify the objectives, impact, and perspectives of the development of European engagement with its citizens.

Amphithéâtre Erignac, 13 rue de l’Université, 75007 Paris
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.
