CosmoPolitical Friday n°2: The European "demos" exists

By Sergio Arbarviro
Friday, October 2 2020
13:00 to 13:45

Lunchtime mini-webinar




The European demos exists (2006-2009)

To build a democracy, one needs a "demos", i.e. a collective of citizens that engage in respectful and regulated exchange of views to decide together about their collective future. 

Such a demos is reputed to exist in each Member State. What evidence can we have that it also exists at the scale of the whole European Union?
