In the recent months, a lot of attention was given to the elections for the European Parliament and the subsequent launch of a new political cycle in the EU institutions. However, 2019 is also a year of important elections for national parliaments and we are witnessing the rise of new political configurations in various countries. Due to the long financial and economic crisis, party systems and profiles in Southern Europe have developed in new directions.

Q&A, end of seminar
This event will inform the audience about the creation of a new centre-left government in Italy, and forthcoming general election in Portugal (scheduled for October 6). Key political developments in these two countries will be discussed, highlighting the role of progressive forces in particular. The simultaneous assessment of contemporary Italian and Portuguese politics also allows for a discussion on what Southern Europe went through in the past decade, and how the position of the Southern European countries has changed in a transforming European Union.
