5th Summer University for Democracy: "The crisis of leadership"
28 June - 2 July 2010, Strasbourg
Nearly 600 political leaders, civil society activists, journalists and business leaders meet in Strasbourg, from 28 June to 2 July, to discuss the developments related to the exercise of power in the time of crisis.
In order to meet the expectations of their citizens, what are the means and resources available today to governments at local, national and international levels? How can confidence in representatives be restored? How can values such as peace, justice and freedom be disseminated and promoted in non-democratic countries?
The Summer University is the annual highlight of the Council of Europe’s 16 schools of political studies which aim to train the next generation of political, economic, social and cultural leaders in transition countries.
