25 years of Spitzenkandidaten: what does the future hold?

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Tuesday, 05 March 2019 12:15 - 14:30

Venue: Stanhope Hotel

In 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker became the first European Commission’s President to be elected under the new Spitzenkandidaten system. Five years on, four European political parties have already chosen their Spitzenkandidaten, but the system has not been immune from criticism. Join us for a public debate on the future of the Spitzenkandidaten system and of EU democracy more broadly.
