The AUSE 2019 Annual Conference will take place in Rome, on 6° and 7° of May and will been dedicated to the 2019 European Parliament elections, forty years after the first direct election oft the EP.
The European Parliament elections to be held in May 2019 have to be considered as a crucial event. Their results will not only be indicative of citizens' orientations but they also will be decisive for the prospects of the integration process.
These aspects reinforce the need to be acquainted with the history, the role and the functioning of the EP, as well as to know the challenges that EP will have to face and the programs of the various European political groups for the next 9th Legislature.
The conference will start with an essential opening reflection on the crisis of representative democracy, which affects the European Parliament in particular, as a supranational institution.
The conference will be dedicated also to the presentation of the programs drawn up by the European political forces on the occasion of the EP elections. The invited speakers will represent Foundations, think tanks, political forces directly involved in the identification of the crucial issues, in the preparation of proposals and in the writing of transnational platforms. Their contribution will be commented by experts.
