Barcelona, 16-17 June 2017
Europe has been in the throes of political and economic turmoil for several years. The EMU has effectively failed to deliver on its promise of convergence, stability and prosperity. The EU is riven with divisions between core and periphery. It also faces major political threats following Brexit and the rise of radical rightwing movements across several countries. The forces that have undermined democracy and relations among the nations of Europe are still very much present. New ideas are required to place sovereignty, democracy, equality and solidarity at the forefront.
