  Connecting Europe  




In 2017, the EPC launched the programme Connecting Europe, a joint initiative of EPC and Stiftung Mercator.

Connecting Europe enables projects and organisations supported by Stiftung Mercator to actively engage with EU policymakers in Brussels. The programme focuses on joint activities on the future of Europe, democracy, youth, climate, migration and other key issues. 

By conducting those activities, Connecting Europe fosters an open, constructive dialogue between member states and decision-makers in Brussels. It promotes sustainable exchanges between civil society initiatives on the ground and the policy community in Brussels. The project aims to enhance mutual understanding between EU countries and to positively contribute to the cohesion of the European project.

Rule of law / PODCAST

Rule of law: Can't we all just get along?
Rule-of-law concerns have been plaguing the Union for the better part of the last decade, and don’t appear to be going anywhere. At a recent EPC Policy Dialogue, organised as part of our Connecting Europe project and in cooperation with Democracy Reporting International, European Commission Vice-President for Values and Transparency Věra Jourová spoke about the current state of rule-law-proceedings and elaborated on the new Commission’s plans to counter democratic backsliding in the member states.
