Conversations on Europe: Elections 2024

Event information


For this last Conversations of Europe this Spring 2024, join our experts for a discussion on the Elections 2024: European Parliament Elections across the 27 Member States.

During this session of our Conversations on Europe, we will focus our discussion on the ongoing election campaign to the European Parliament, as the elections will take place between June 6th and 9th. With looming economic slowdown, increasing migration both on the southern and eastern border of the EU, and growing support for populist and nationalist parties, what are the prospects for the EU integration? What are the main topics of the campaign, and how will they impact the elections? Which parties will gain a majority in the upcoming 5 years term and shape the future of the EU?
