Europe Forum Turku 2018 and the European Elections 2019
was published on 13 December 2018. The paper is an article collection focusing on the Europe Forum Turku 2018 and the European elections 2019.
The first Europe Forum Turku was organised at the end of August 2018. The event brought together experts from politics, economy and the academia to discuss current questions and future challenges of Europe and European integration. Since the Forum was designed as an open, public event, it also provided a platform for intensive discussions and knowledge exchange between the experts and the public.
This publication tackles the legacy of the first Europe Forum in Turku. A special attention is paid to the year 2019, also called Europe’s “super year”, and its possible implications.
