The International Republican Institute (IRI) together with the Politische Akademie organised a seminar analysing the European elections. High-level participants from Central and Eastern Europe, among them former Prime Minister Kirill Petkov, (former) members of the European Parliament and think tankers, came to Vienna for an intensive programme. IDM Director Sebastian Schäffer spoke in one module about “Re-Balancing the EU – how CEE parties and countries can work together to ensure representation in EU top jobs” and discussed amongst others the idea of a Greater European Council.
