According to the Eurobarometer survey carried out a year before the 2024 EU elections, democracy is the core value that citizens want the European Parliament to defend.

All over Europe, civil society actors promote and protect democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights, make sure that underrepresented voices are heard, and support governments and institutions in responding to people needs. However, the space for civil society is shrinking at the EU level, and so are the opportunities to meaningfully contribute to policy making.

On 05 March 2024, on “Civic space, threats to democracy and EU elections” we will discuss the links between civic space and the state of play of democracy in the EU against the backdrop of next year’s European elections, in a context of increasing risk of disinformation and interference.
