CSE-EUA event on the Defence of Democracy Package & fundamental rights: What is at stake?

26 March 2024

Hosted by MEP Anna Donáth, and co-organised by Civil Society Europe (CSE) and the European University Association (EUA), this event taking place on 10 April from 09.30 AM to 12.00 PM CEST at the European Parliament will explore the impact on fundamental rights of the European Commission (EC)’s proposal for a Defence of Democracy Package.

Th event will focus on the proposed Directive establishing harmonised requirements in the internal market on transparency of interest representation carried out on behalf of third countries (text and annex), in view of the current discussions in the European Parliament EP and within the Council of the EU.

During the event, with key representatives from co-legislators, academia and civil society, we will examine the possible undue impact on the freedoms of association and expression, as well as academic freedoms, of the approach of this directive in the EEA and globally. We will also draw lessons from existing similar legislation and policies in Europe and beyond on foreign interference and see whether and how concerns can be remedied in the EC’s proposed Directive.
