The 2019 EP elections have been dubbed by many as the most important EP elections in the EU's history. They present numerous questions pertaining not only to the coming five years of the European Parliament, but for the future of the European Union as a whole. Eurosceptic, nationalist and populist for
ces have been on the rise in the past years across Europe – will they be more influential in the new parliament or will the established international order hold?
The urban talk (held in English) will try to answer this question as well as to reflect on the elections results globally and to debate future scenarios for European integration. It will be followed by a light refreshment.
