Conference Conversations 8 – The European Citizens’ Panels and the future of democracy in the EU

What are the main recommendations that have been put forward by Panel 2 (‘European democracy/values, rights, rule of law, security’) of the Conference’s European Citizens’ Panels? How were these recommendations formulated and how are they likely to be taken forward by the Conference Plenary and the EU institutions? Can this Panel – and the remaining other three Panels – be considered a successful exercise in citizens’ participation? Will they make a difference for the outcome of the Conference and for how we practice democracy in the Europe Union in the future?
