Debating Europe is an online discussion platform that fosters debates between European citizens and policymakers. It is based on a simple model: citizens ask questions, policymakers and experts respond. Since launching in 2011, it has built a 6 million strong community of citizens and a social media following of over 250,000 people from across Europe. A selection of nearly 200,000 questions have been put to over 3,000 key policymakers and experts. In February 2017, we launched a German version of the platform: Debating Europe/de.
Debating Europe is an initiative of Friends of Europe, the Brussels-based think tank for a more sustainable, inclusive and forward-looking Europe.
