ECIT Annual Conference 2022
PUT EUROPEAN CITIZENSHIP ON THE EU AGENDA TO DEEPEN AND EXPAND
Thank you to all the participants who joined us in person and online, and made this year's edition of the ECIT Annual Conference a big success!
The 7th Edition of the ECIT Annual Conference considered how European Citizenship can be strengthened and become more inclusive and outward-looking, if it is to be relevant and part of the architecture of the New Europe. This means adapting this first transnational citizenship of the modern era to the twin challenge facing the EU: how to strengthen democratic decision-making internally, whilst enlarging the EU to include new Member States from the wider Europe beyond its borders. The citizen dimension has been absent from the debate about how to secure a wider political union beyond the borders of the EU; it is therefore fundamental to remedy this, after the clear support European citizens have shown towards Ukraine.
