The University of Deusto and its research teams International Relations and European Integration and Property Law will discuss on 1 April 2019 the future of the European Union in the context of the Europhobic movements in the event titled “Populisms and European elections 2019”.
The consequences of the 2008 economic recession and the migratory pressures are among the factors explaining the rise of populism and anti-trust movement at global and European levels. Eurosceptic populisms put pressure on national governments, which limit the scope of their European commitment. These movements do not have a significant presence in the current European Parliament (EP), but polls point to a notable increase in anti-European parties after the elections in May 2019.
To discuss these issues, the University of Deusto has invited Pablo Pérez Armenteros (Head of Social Networks at the European Commission) to speak about “European Elections: Challenges and Opportunities for Democracy”; Eulalia W. Petit (Professor of International Public Law and International Relations at the University of Seville) to discuss about “The Future Europe after the European elections of May 2019: Possible Scenarios”; Stefan Lehne (Visiting Scholar of Carniege Europe) with the lecture "The rise of populism and the future of Europe"; and Juan José Alvárez (Professor of Private International Law at the UPV) with the theme "Towards a more democratic Europe: perspectives and proposals”.
