Participation of José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, in the Ombudsman seminar "Europe in crisis: the challenge of winning citizens' trust"

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the high level seminar organised by P. Nikiforos Diamandouros, European Ombudsman, on "Europe in crisis: the challenge of winning citizens' trust". In his speech the President focused on possible ways to close the gap between "people in the street" and the elites in the EU. He called for leadership and strong ownership of the European project, saying that the EU was not just Brussels but it was for all. The leadership of EU institutions was required, but also at all levels, from national Governments, Parliaments, social partners, civil society, business, universities. He highlighted that democracy was not just about the state but about engaging.
Discussion followed with topics related to EU response to the crisis, legitimacy and transparency of European institutions. Questions were asked both from the audience present and those following the event online and submitting their questions via Twitter.
