Our Third Mercator European Dialogue (MED) offers another unique space for national parliamentarians from across Europe and the opportunity for shared conversation about issues of common interest and concern. Building on the success of the first two Forums held in Berlin and Athens, we anticipate a continuing involvement of many parliamentarians from various political and national backgrounds joined by a new cohort of voices.
The Third MED will be guided by the title “Quo Vadis EU? Brexit, Political Polarisation and Democratic Deconsolidation”. This time, the Members of Parliament will be discussing the implications of the “Brexit”, with a view to both practical political consequences and the seismic shifts modern democracies seem to be undergoing. They will share their visions of the future of the EU, debate their role in these scenarios and search for avenues of common action.
GMF organises the dialogue together with Stiftung Mercator in cooperation with the Istituto Affari Internazionali | IAI in Italy, the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs | CIDOB in Spain, and the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy | ELIAMEP in Greece.
