Political Networking Event in Berlin - 22 April 2024

On Monday 22 April, the Master in Advanced European and International Studies - Applied European Policy and Governance (EUGOV) students had the opportunity to network and exchange with members of the German Parliament Ria Schröder (FDP - Free Democratic Party) and Christian Petry (SPD - Social Democratic Party of Germany), as well as with CIFE Alumni, professionals and other political experts based in the German capital.

The inputs given by the two MPs gave insights into their political roles and the work of the Franco-German parliamentary assembly as a special bilateral form of parliamentary cooperation.

In a subsequent discussion round, interesting aspects of political participation were covered, such as the principle of self-efficacy, the role of political parties in a functioning democracy and cross-border cooperation in Europe. A particularly interesting point raised was the role of education, academic and vocational exchange programmes and their impact on European politics.

Thank you to EUGOV student Johanna Koch for organising the event and to Visionary Berlin for hosting the evening.
