Upcoming Events

Launch of the Timbro Authoritarian Populism Index

EPiCENTER and the European Dialogue programme of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom are delighted to invite you to the launch of the Authoritarian Populism Index to discuss the challenges facing liberal democracies and the rule of law in Europe. The event will reveal the latest edition of Timbro's Authoritarian Populism Index, which assesses political trends of all European democracies since 1980 and outlines the experiences of countries run by authoritarian populists.

This event will present key results of the Authoritarian Populism Index and invites you to jointly discuss (among many other possible questions): how the European Commission's rule of law mechanism has performed over the last mandate; whether certain EU policies have contributed to the rise of populism and the slow erosion of centrist forces on the left and right in Europe; what new political ideas and communication methods could provide satisfactory answers for the concerns of the European electorate; how countries with authoritarian populist governance compare to their counterparts; what successful mechanisms can ensure that liberal democratic principles remain intact.

Launch of Market Force

EPiCENTER and the European Dialogue Programme of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom are delighted to invite you to the launch of Market Force, a pan-European research initiative assessing the success of the Single Market in the last 30 years and outlining a blueprint of liberalizing reforms that can ensure its success for the next 30 years.

Europe is currently following, rather than leading, in innovation and economic development, primarily due to increasing overregulation, especially in the technological and industrial sectors. This discussion aims to identify opportunities for how the EU can create a new strategy to enhance its competitiveness, recognize the potential of new technologies, encourage a regulatory environment for their adoption, and ensure that Europe remains open to business and trade.
