The European Civic Forum is organizing, in partnership with the European Alternatives, a public debate in Brussels in the European Parliament on 18 February 2016 (11:00 – 12:30) titled “Time to declare a State of Democracy!” This event comes at a juncture in time where fundamental rights and the EU founding principles of human dignity, freedom, democracy, respect for human rights, solidarity, non-discrimination, and equality are at the centre of debate all across Europe. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance and justice prevail. Article 2 has a prominent place in the EU treaties, yet a vast gap exists between these rights and values and their exercise and implementation. More information is available here.
