The ongoing sanitary crisis has highlighted the urgency of improving EU democracy through the implementation of new tools to boost participation. Digitalisation can give a decisive contribution.
In this special report, EURACTIV will look at the empowerment of citizens through deliberative democracy processes, with a special focus on the Conference on the Future of Europe.
It will also explain to what extent digitalisation can contribute to the functioning of democracy rather than jeopardise it. The discussion will touch on themes such as data sovereignty, and how EU fundamental rights, such as freedom of expression and the fight of disinformation can be guaranteed for citizens.
