On 25-27 February, the final of four European Citizens’ Panels of the Conference on the Future of Europe meets in Dublin to debate and deliver its recommendations.

The Institute for International and European Affairs (IIEA) in Dublin (Ireland) will host, as part of the Conference on the Future of Europe, around 200 European citizens in Dublin Castle on 25-27 February. The European Citizens Panel on ‘ a stronger economy, social justice and jobs / education, culture, youth and sport / digital transformation’ has already met twice to work on its recommendations – in Strasbourg in September and online in November.

The Panels’ five work streams are: Working in Europe, An Economy for the Future, A Just Society, Learning in Europe, and An Ethical and Safe Digital Transformation. Once finalised, its recommendations will be debated at the Conference Plenary meeting on 11-12 March. You can find all relevant information, including the latest report on the Panel’s work, on the dedicated Panel 1 webpage. The draft agenda is available here.

The session will take place with panellists physically present, in full respect of the public health measures in place in Ireland. Hybrid facilities will be available for participants to connect remotely as well.
