About the Event:
This international event brings together representatives from academia, think tanks, civil society and policy-making to take stock of where we are today and we are heading when it comes to the Rule of Law in Europe. These questions will be assessed in the fields of Rights, Security and Economy in a number of expert panels, plenary sessions and keynote lectures. Particular attention will be given to the situation in Central and Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans. This Event is co-organised between the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels, the Centre for Economic Analysis (CEA) in Skopje, with the full involvement of the five selected members of the ENGAGE Fellowship. Various high-level speakers have confirmed their attendance, including Ms. Natasha Gaber-Damjanovska - Judge at the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Macedonia, Ms. Uranija Pirovska - Executive director of the Helsinki Committee of the Republic of Macedonia, and Mr. Massimo Bordignon, Member of the European Fiscal Board. The full programme will be released in August 2017.
About the Fellowship:
CEPS launched the ENGAGE Fellowship Programme with the support of the Open Society Initiative for Europe (OSIFE). This tailor-made Programme connects academic, civil society and think tank actors from Central and Eastern European and Western Balkans countries with EU-level policy debates. It consists of a one-year programme providing a set of trainings, study visits, public events and a policy brief writing exercise. It will culminate in the active participation of the selected fellows in the 2018 CEPS Ideas Lab. Please note that currently there is no open call for applications.
