Conversation with Justin Greenwood: EU Trilogues: Challenges for Democracy?

Democracy cannot be taken for granted—not in Europe, not anywhere. With this series of talks by experts on European politics and society the Center for West European Studies and the Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at the at the University of Washington want to encourage discussion about the future of democracy in the European Union, its member states, and the neighborhood. As the EU Commission launches its Conference on the Future of Europe in 2021, the EU Center invites you to imagine this future with us. The contributors will reflect on the EU’s achievements and challenges. You will hear their reflections on how to strengthen and expand democratic processes and institutions, both in Brussels and in Europe more broadly.

This lecture is part of the EU Democracy Forum, a 4-part lecture series addressing actors, institutions, and policies in the European Union and its neighborhood.
