On February 1-3, 2019, 61 members of parliament from 22 different EU member states came together in Rome to listen, discuss, and collect a variety of national perspectives on the challenges to the current political system and the EU, addressing the question: “Europe: Is The System Broken?”

The dialogue brought together different national perspectives on rising public expectations, the speed of change and the implications for democracy, and leadership facing such changes. Reflections and debates around initiatives for more participatory democracies, the tools for strengthening social cohesion and the empowerment of citizens, allowed participants to discuss insights on innovative system fixes in a fast-changing world — not only at the national and constituency level, but also on a European scale.
