54 Days left for the European Elections

Two experts

One question

The European Elections are getting closer. Nevertheless, the questions around many maters troubling the European Union remain unanswered. This is the reason why Europe Direct ELIAMEP is organizing a series of dialogues titled:

“Strategic Dialogues for Europe”


What is it?

Two experts, with opposing views, are taking a stance on the same subject.

What is the subject?

The selection of subjects is based on the maters that monopolize the conversation around the future of the European Union after the European Parliament Elections. It includes:

– European Economic and Monetary policy

– Immigration

– European Security

– Western Balkans and EU Enlargement

– The Rise of Nationalism and Populism in Europe

How can I participate?

The 10-minute dialogues will be recorded on video and uploaded on Europe Direct ELIAMEP’s channel on Youtube. They will also be posted on the EDIC ELIAMEP’s and ELIAMEP’s websites, and their social media.

The strategic dialogues premiere will be on Wednesday, 3rd April, on the question: “Did the Eurozone make it after all?”

George Pagoulatos, Professor at the Department of International and European Economic Studies of the Athens University of Economics and Business, and vice-president of ELIAMEP, and

Nikos Koutsiaras, Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science and Public Administration of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens will debate the issue.

Giannis Koutsomitis, journalist, will moderate the dialogue.

The battle will be hard, but who will prevail?

But of course, this will be for the pubic to decide! As soon as the video is uploaded on our Youtube channel, you can vote on the comments which opinion persuaded you! You can vote for 10 days after the video is uploaded. Afterwards, Europe Direct ELIAMEP will announce the winner on social media.
