MPIfG at Cologne "Europa" theme weeks

In the run-up to the 2019 European elections, the Cologne Science Forum (KWR) held its “Europa” theme weeks in the city in April and May. MPIfG researchers presented their current research to a broad local public at the events. In her talk, “Leave or Remain? Lessons From the Brexit Campaigns," in the VHS Studienhaus, Lisa Suckert explored economic and political visions and horror scenarios on both sides of the Brexit campaign. With the political scientist Birgit Bujard and journalist Grahame Lucas she then talked about the causes of Brexit and the future relationship between the UK and the EU. In "Shaping the Future - Developing Europe," held at the GESIS Leibniz Institute, Marina Hübner spoke about the lack of political legitimacy of the Eurogroup. She went on to discuss perspectives for the future and the EU’s capacity for democracy with scholars from the University of Cologne, the Cologne Business School, GESIS, and the 70 attendees.
