European Parliamentary Elections 2019. A Panel Discussion
Past Events
The high turnout rate and the loss of ground for the traditional European parties have proven that European voters want change - but eurosceptics have not achieved a general breakthrough.

For maybe the first time, voters in Europe were mobilized by European (and global) issues, rather than domestic politics.  Topics as migration and climate change have drawn voters in large numbers.  The result is a European Parliament in which old coalitions and alliances will have to be reconsidered.  For a post-election analysis, Danube Institute has invited experts with various backgrounds:

Mark Higgie, retired Ambassador of Australia (both to Hungary and the EU)
Borisz Kálnoky (TBC), Correspondent of Die Welt, and regular contributor to Die Presse, Weltwoche and Deutsche Welle
Eszter Petronella Soós, political scientist, Milton Friedman University
Ulla Terkelsen, international correspondent of Danish TV2

DATE: May 28, 2019

TIME: 10:00-12:00

VENUE: DANUBE INSTITUTE,1067 Budapest, Eötvös utca 24.

Please register through the RSVP link.

The discussion will be held in English.
The event will be videorecorded and the film will be put on our website.  By participating, you agree to the use of your image in the film.
