Conference Conversations 7 – Taking Stock of the Conference

Has public reception of the Conference changed since its launch earlier this year? How representative is the Conference so far and are the randomly selected citizens representative of the diversity of EU citizens? Has the promise to include youth voices and perspectives been fulfilled? How will the upcoming meetings of the Conference Plenary take up the recommendations of the four Citizens’ Panels? What role will the nine working groups play in this process? Who will be the main political drivers behind the final proposals and what role will the European Commission and the European Parliament play in this process? How involved will national governments be in the next phases of the Conference?
