Europa in Wissenschaft und Politik

Discussion round at the European Parliament in Strasbourg

Also available in Deutsch

Europe in science and politics – a traditional event series of the European office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) – took place on 13th and 14th March in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Every year, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung organizes this get-together of selected Professors with CDU/CSU-Deputies in the European Parliament together with The Hanns Seidel Foundation.

This year's session was dedicated to three topics that are still important for the European integration. In the first session, the participants discussed the compliance with law in the European Union, where the focus was especially on the contempt of the Stability and Growth Pact. In the second session, it was talked about populism, a topic which lately sparked broad discussions all over the world but particularly in Europe. The third and last session tackled a subject that often goes unnoticed but is really important, the free movement of workers, which was lately put into question due to the Brexit-vote.
