Conceived in this moment of appalling political instability, Agora Europe creates opportunities for a public debate on how to reorganize the European political space. The event at the Oxford University European Centre follows events held at the Sorbonne, the Columbia University Maison Française, the University of Bologna and UCL. It will be an occasion to talk about the future of Europe, and to discuss the potential of each European nation to shape the European political space. Each speaker will talk about the European Union as a political and not merely economic union. The ensuing debate will address populism and Brexit as the central themes.
As an agora, the participation of the audience is essential.
