Nurturing, protecting and strengthening our democracy
The record-high turnout in the 2019 European elections shows the vibrancy of the European democracy. Yet, Europeans need a stronger role in the decision-making process and a more active role in setting our priorities. A Conference on the future of Europe will enable them to have their say over what is important for the EU.
In order to protect our democracy from external interference, a joint approach and common standards are necessary to tackle issues such as disinformation and online hate messages.
The Commission will engage in consolidating its partnership with the European Parliament, the voice of the people, by ensuring its involvement at all stages of international negotiations, as well as transparency and integrity throughout the legislative process.
