The Hambach Democracy Dialogue (HDD) conference is the FES annual flagship event on the future of European Democracy with distinguished speakers from EU institutions, Members of European Parliaments, experts from universities, think tanks, civil society organizations and media outlets. The HDD follows in the tradition started by the Hambach Festival of 1832 in terms of German and European democratic history and Europe's ideals and history of integration. At Hambach Castle in the German-French border region we reflect on democracy in Europe at our high-level conferences and establish a platform for exchanging progressive ideas and proposals for enhancing and defending European democracy.
The next Hambach Democratic Dialogue will take place in 2022. Meanwhile, our work on the future of European Democracy continues. Here you can find more information and a highlight video of the HDD21 with prominent speakers from all over Europe. Together with our media partner Euractiv we will publish several articles on the main proposals and ideas discussed at the conference. Please find a selection here:
