Speakers at the EYP teacher seminar

Nov 05, 2018

As part of the national selection meeting of the European Youth Parliament (EYP) in Kiel at the end of May, Michael Bayerlein and Anne Metten contributed to a European policy seminar addressed to the accompanying teachers. While students from all over Germany developed their own ideas on current European topics in groups and then debated these in plenary, their teachers took part in this seminar focusing on "Justice and Fundamental Rights" and "Democratic Change", which was organized by Representation of the European Commission in Germany.

Asked whether the rise of populism, which can be identified in many European countries, poses a threat to democracy, the staff of the Chair of Comparative Politics have given the teachers insights into current research, discussed populist policies and developments, and have subsequently scientifically classified them.
