Controversies surrounding European Solidarity mechanisms

The Jean Monnet Final Agora Forum

This one-day forum scheduled for the 21st of October 2019 at the IEE-ULB, is the final event of the IEE-ULB’s Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence project on “Controversial forms of European Solidarity”. Its’ main focus is to bridge the distance between research and practices surrounding European policy-making in a wide range of fields.

Set-up to facilitated inter-sectoral dialogue between practitioners and researchers, a series of four topical roundtables with gather a limited number of researchers, officials and civil society figures. Over the course of a two-hour long open debate under the Chatham house rule, they are to discuss the outcomes of the project on a number of topics that were part of the project’s three year-long research and teaching schedule including: (1) inter-regional forms of solidarity, (2) immigration and solidarity, (3) security and solidarity, the case of cybersecurity, and (4) fundamental rights protection and solidarity. Each roundtable will discuss a paper informed by the work done over the past years with an eye on discussing future implications both for research and policy-making in the various policy fields covered.
