EUA Workshop: The course of democracy in Europe – What pathways for universities?
28 May 2021 | From partners
As part of their leadership series, the European University Association (EUA) invites university leaders from its membership to an online discussion about the course of democracy in Europe and the potential impact on universities. The event will present different scenarios for the course of democracy and political systems across Europe. It will also offer an opportunity to analyse the impact they may have on universities, their role in society and the framework conditions in which they operate.
Within these scenarios, participants are invited to exchange views and develop ideas about possible pathways for Europe’s universities and their societal engagement. It will be a chance to further develop the discussion around EUA’s vision of Europe’s universities in 2030, which sees democratic backsliding as a major challenge for this decade. The workshop is the last in a series of online events for university leaders aimed at turning EUA’s vision into a reality.
The event is free of charge and open to leaders of EUA member universities. Registration is possible upon invitation. More information available at the website of EUA.
