Die Offene Gesellschaft: Do we really need the European Union?

In cooperation with the initiative “Die Offene Gesellschaft” which is organizing open talks since 2015 to animate citizens to participate in politics, the Schauspiel Stuttgart hosts a same-titled series of events. Once per month we are welcoming the audience to join a discussion with experts from culture, science and politics.

The European Union with its 28 member states has the biggest domestic market in the world – this purposely economic integration is intended to prevent military conflicts, boost economic growth and the wealth of European citizens. But what does happen to the EU and Europe because of Brexit? In February you could discuss those and other questions with the prestigious political scientist Andre Wilkens and Jörg Armbruster: Do we really need this Union? What will happen if there are more attempts from the right wing populists to leave the EU?
