The Event:
From 30th August to 1st September 2017, students, academics, policy makers and civil society representatives from all over Europe will meet in Brussels to exchange views on the gaps and future challenges of European citizenship. You will find this event very different from the usual European conference: there is real content, brainstorming and the right atmosphere and environment to test out your ideas and learn from others. 

A Public Debate “Brexit: Decoupling European Rights from EU Citizenship?” will take place on 31st August at MAI (6.30 pm). Over 200 people are expected for the event in the evening: registration is free of charge.

About 75 participants are expected at the Summer University which will take the form of a dialogue among the three main protagonists of European citizenship: civil society representatives, academics, students and public authorities. Over 200 people are expected for the public debate in the evening.
Participation Fees: To attend the 3-day Summer University a participation fee of 100€ is requested to cover the costs. A special participation fee of 60€ is foreseen for students and unemployed.
