"The Lisbon Treaty: at the crossroad of legitimacy and necessity" debate in Brussels
The Madariaga European Foundation is hosting the last debate of a series launched and organised throughout 2007 on "The Constitutional Treaty: to be or not to be".
After months of speculation, the Constitutional Treaty was replaced with the Reform Treaty, i.e. the Lisbon Treaty. Pushed through the backdoor, without referenda, the Lisbon Treaty, though essential, lacks democratic support.
But does it really need it?
The debate will take place from 12.30 to 14.00 at the Madariaga European Foundation, 87, rue Royale, 1000 Brussels. Free Sandwiches!
Special guest speakers:
Mr Jo Leinen, German Member of the European Parliament (PES)
Mrs Claude Fischer, President of Confrontations Europe
Mr Piotr Maciej Kaczyński, Research Fellow at CEPS
Moderated by Vanessa Witkowski
