Hauptschule
Breakout / Keynote & Working Group
english language

What is the impact of EU integration on the InEquality of European institutions, Member States and citizens? Who are the decision takers and is there a need to balance out the opportunities for participation? How can we foster sustainable and inclusive growth? What should a future Single Market offering equal opportunity resemble? In three interactive workshops dealing with the policy-making process in the EU, political priorities and equality of opportunities within the European Single Market, participants will elaborate proposals for a future EU integration that fosters equality.
