Futuro dell

Since sent Dublin – Economy, social justice, work, education, culture, sport and digital transformation. It is the largest panel of citizens at the thematic level Today (February 25) until Sunday in the Irish capital, DublinFor the last meeting in the framework Conference on the Future of the European Union Out of which 200 citizens are required to give their recommendations.

Those approved by 70 percent consensus among citizens will be added So far 130 recommendations have been made From three other panels dedicated to Democracy and Values, Environment and Health, and EU Foreign and Migration Policy. Meeting in Dublin is the largest thematic panel, from workers’ sports rights to digital and economic transformation, in which citizens have withdrawn from 21 priorities identified in the previous two meetings, including issues such as taxation and agriculture. As seen in some of the recommendations of the other three panels, this can be a drawback as the recommendations are very general and approximate.

In the context of the current crisis in Ukraine, it is hard to imagine. With Russia’s continued military offensive, this issue does not enter distinctly into citizens’ concerns, and although the request for the EU to gain more power in foreign and defense policy has been widely advanced in the last Maastricht panel, they will try to formulate recommendations in this field. . This time it will be Dublin Castle to do from Arrangements for the third and final meeting of this panel, which will end the cycle of “action” meetings for citizens to put forward their proposals. Once the circle of recommendations is closed, the conference will get to the heart of the matter with a discussion between European citizens and institutions at the plenary on 11 and 12 March. The political and civic component of the conference on the future of the European Union needs to find a square in the coming weeks to provide political follow-up to some of the recommendations.
