Thinking Outside the Ballot Box: Democracy and the EU


European Democracy is at a critical juncture. Diminishing faith in government, rising populism, increasing constraints on civil society and democratic participation, and flouting of the rule-of-law are just some of the worrying trends we are seeing across the continent. 'Thinking Outside the Ballot Box' will bring leading democracy advocates from across Europe to address these growing challenges.

Keynote speaker, Tom Arnold, will set the stage for the day's event, which will include two interactive discussions on democracy building and a panel on increasing trust in EU institutions (more details below).

More than 30 experts and practitioners from throughout Europe will join in these discussions, including:
