Europe in the spotlight

The Institute for Democratic Governance “Globernance” and The London School of Economics and Political Science announce the second edition of the International Congress “Bilbao European Encounters” to be be held on November 30 and December 1, with the participation of political experts, lawyers, philosophers , economists and scientists who will address topical issues on democracy, social justice, immigration, culture and economic development.

Europe is currently facing a crisis that goes beyond the economic sphere and is obliging to seek and agree on a new story, to boost the construction of a shared project, which is now at a crossroads. It is a global, also political, social and environmental crisis, which now is joined by the threat of terrorism. Bilbao will become the benchmark of analysis and reflection on a new European model that responds to the aspirations of the citizens of the “Old Continent”.

Titled “Blazing the trail of a new narrative for new Europe”, Bilbao will host the second edition of “Bilbao European Encounters”, a space for discussion aimed at finding solutions to overcome the global crisis that we face, full of risks, but also opportunities.
