PPE CONFERENCE Re-thinking the state: Democracy between order and chaos.
What to expect?
For the younger generations out there, whose countries have enjoyed a strong spell of democracy, the turn of the decade seems to have shaken our socio-political foundations. Foundations that we, perhaps at times, have taken for granted. With the advent of new threats and complex challenges, questions of change arise. Is it necessary to radically evolve in order to adjust to the new world, into which we transition? What is our modern understanding of democracy? And is its contemporary execution by nation states the most beneficial towards the people it supposedly serves? With the added pressure of unprecedented crisis, states and democracies find themselves at a crossroads; an identity crisis, which, if left unanswered, may have serious consequences.
At the 6th PPE conference, we aim to address these and related questions and actively discuss about choices we can have in this time of instability.
