    Europe for Citizens – Rebuilding European Identity

    In the light of Brexit, democratic backsliding in formerly stable democracies, and the rise of nationalism and populism in Europe, the European Table in Italy focusses on citizens’ trust and identification with the EU. It aims to develop ideas of how European citizens can re-engage with the European idea and the European project.

    To this end, we bring together distinguished leaders from politics, business, culture, and civil society. We aim to share new insights and develop perspectives for a stronger connection between the European Union and its citizens.

    The European Tables, a series of dialogue events, is part of a program cycle entitled “Refocusing Europe,” which the Foundation launched last year. The series aims to present and discuss new concepts and initiatives addressing the enormous challenges that Europe faces both from within and from the outside.
