On the 10th of November 2018 at 4 p.m. citizens all over the continent will gather at a single moment in time to spark a broad debate about European democracy and what it means to be European citizens. From theatres, balconies and public spaces all over Europe, artists and citizens will proclaim a European Republic, discuss, and pave the way for the emancipatory claim of citizens’ equality beyond the nation-state. Political equality for all European citizens is at the heart of the idea.
The European Balcony Project was initiated by the European Democracy Lab and realized with the support of numerous citizens across Europe. Ulrike Guérot, professor of European Politics and the Study of Democracy, is the founder of the European Democracy Lab.
