The EU and its people: a failure in democracy

Two stories about patterns of failure in EU policy-making that happen to affect our rights in an increasingly digital society. One illustrates the way the institutions fall short, the other how civil society sometimes is part of the problem as well. We also want to explore questions like:

  • Which failures can be fixed?
  • How can we unfail them?
  • What does that mean for civil society and advocacy?

To not give away too much, a sneak into the contents of this session from the Chaos Communication Congress #32c3 is here.
