European Street Parliaments: The political power of street protests

On the resurgence of street protests

In many places in Europe right now, street protests are forming in critical opposition to governments. From France’s “yellow vests” all the way to Poland’s anti-PiS demonstrators and the Frankfurt-based citizens’ initiative Pulse of Europe, these national demonstrations are taking very different forms. What is their effect on the individual countries – and on Europe as a whole?

The panel will be held in German and French.
