Supranational Democracy Dialogue 2020
SUPRANATIONAL DEMOCRACY DIALOGUE : MYTH OR POSSIBLE REALITY?
The University of Salento and the Jean Monnet Chair “Legal Theory of European Integration: a Supranational Democracy Model?” will host the second edition of the Supranational Democracy Dialogue, to be held in Brindisi on April 16-17 2020.
Building on the success of the first edition - with more than 30 panelists from 12 Countries and 4 Continents – the Organizing Committee shall host an even broader and more diverse conference gathering scholars, thinkers, representatives of institutions and civil society to discuss with an open mind the main issues faced by the mankind and their possible solutions in terms of governance and civic participation at all levels.
The focus will be on the political, cultural and social dimensions beyond the State, overcoming the existing structure of power and the competitive model of a divided planet.
Special attention will be dedicated to the European Union – as the first experiment of democracy beyond the State – and to the existing global institutions which, in spite of all their shortcomings inherent in the intergovernmental cooperation, set great targets such as peace and security, respect of fundamental rights and sustainable development goals.
