*****

As you probably know, the Conference “Supranational Democracy Dialogue, II Ed.”, planned for April 16-17th  has been canceled, due to the current health crisis. 

Nonetheless, the organizing committee thinks that no other period would be more favorable to reflect and discuss the limits of current European and global governance, to be creative and explore some alternative paradigm. 
So, we decided to replace the conference with a series of workshops on-line, free and open to the public, according to the plan below.
 
The first one, dedicated to Europe is planned on May 9 (Europe’s Day), the others will follow.
The format will change a bit: every workshop will last two hours, every panelist will have 10 minutes, we will collect questions in chat and allow for short interventions and then every panelist will have time for a short reply and conclusions.
 
We will post all the relevant information on the Facebook page 
 We will post the recording, after, on the YouTube channels “Università del Salento” and “Supranational Democracy”. 
 
It happens, at times, that a crisis is an opportunity to get out of the box and do things differently. We do not exclude that this modality could allow us to involve an even greater audience and enlarge our network.
