Seizing the chance: differentiation, democracy and the Conference on the Future of Europe

EU3D researchers will participate in a webinar on differentiation and the Conference on the Future of Europe, organised by Istituto Affari Internazionali and the project EU IDEA on 21 June 2021.

Differentiation has become a normal feature of the European integration process. Depending on the form it takes and how it relates to the overarching European Union's system, it can be a tool for integration, a symptom of fragmentation, or simply a solution for managing diversity. Differentiation and its implications for the governance and accountability of the EU are therefore key elements to be taken into consideration in the context of the broader debate to be conducted at the Conference on the future of Europe.
