Objective

The reform of the EU after the crisis is the topic of the 9th edition of the CIDOB-SWP Dialogue, organized jointly with the German Institute for International Affairs and Security Affairs (SWP) and with the support of the Europe for Citizens program. The dialogue will discuss central aspects of the European agenda, taking into account the domestic scenarios and their influence at the EU level.  

During the seminar, experts from both countries will analyse the rise of populism and its impact on the agendas of the traditional parties, the new Franco-German axis, differentiated integration and the agreement with Turkey during the refugee crisis.
