Summer University in Barcelona: Escola Estiu 2016
This year’s summer school of the Catalonian foundation Nous Horitzons served as a space to reflect and advance. Its programme evolved around questions on the future of the European Union, and Catalonia in particular, on a political but also economic level.
A panel debate, organised by the Green European Foundation, with speakers such as Ernest Urtasun (MEP Greens/EFA, Iniciativa per Catalunya Verds & Economist), dealt with the topic of fiscal paradises, tax evasion and whistle-blower protection in the aftermath of the release of the Panama papers.
Moreover, different parallel workshops were organised on the second day of the workshop on relevant topics such as the consequences of the Brexit or perspectives of the welfare state.
