Eurgetxo Association organizes a conference on European Elections and EU Social Policy

On 6 June 2019 a talk-debate was held at the Romo Kultur Etxea presented by Laura Gómez, professor of European Union Economics at the University of Deusto, “European Elections and EU Social Policy”. The talk was organised by the Eurgetxo group, whose main objectives are to promote knowledge of the EU and its Institutions, to publicise the benefits of belonging to the EU and to disseminate the need to belong to a united and respectful Europe.

After the conference given by Professor Gómez on the social pillar and European social policy, with special emphasis on possible changes after the elections held from 23 to 26 May, a dialogue took place between the president of the Eurgetxo association, Iñaki Bustamante, and the citizens present who, for over an hour, raised their doubts and opinions about the European Union and its future. 

Publication of the book “Citizens’ Reflections on the EU ahead of the 2019 European Parliament elections”

On 12 April 2019, the book “Dialogues with the citizens: Elections to the European Parliament in 2019” was presented for the first time at the Ignacio Aldecoa Cultural Centre (Vitoria-Gasteiz), with the participation of professors from the Jean Monnet EUCLIPE Chair and the University of Deusto, such as Professor Laura Gómez.  

In its pages, the book first reflects on Europe and then focuses on the 2019 European Parliament elections and deals with European policies (sustainability, security and equality). 

Through this publication, which brings together the work of 28 Basque researchers, the aim is to disseminate the main issues being dealt with by the EU, with the main aim of bringing Europe closer to Basque society and thus encouraging the participation of Basque people in the future of Europe.
