10:00 – 11:30   SESSION I                              
                       All for None, and None for All?
                       Europe between autocratic Challenges
Whereas between 1990 and 2005, the            
                       American NGO Freedom House noted a steady
                       increase in the number of states considered
                       free and democratic, 2015 has become the
                       10th year in a row in which values such as
                       freedom, transparency, the rule of law and
                       human rights have waned around the world.
                       This same phenomenon can also be observed
                       in the EU Member States, which is greatly
                       undermining the democratic values on which
                       the European Community is based. A crisis of
                       solidarity has also emerged. EU Member
                       States no longer arrive at joint decisions,
                       resulting in the structural incapacitation of
                       Europe. Nationalism and national egoism, a
                       general shift to the right and referendums and
                       discussions about Brexit and Grexit are
                       immediate and serious threats to the construct
                       and cohesion of the European Union. What has
                       become of the aspirations and reality of
                       Europe’s shared values? What is the true
                       meaning of democracy in Europe today?
                       Under what conditions could the EU deal with
                       the crisis and reform?
                       Host: Dr Leonard Novy, Intitute for Media   
                       and Communication, Cologne

 11:30 – 12:30  LUNCH

12:30 – 14:00   SESSION II:
                       In the Face of Crises: The EU’s Foreign

                       Since the fall of the Iron Curtain between East
                       and West, the threat of war in Europe has
                       never been greater than it is today. Insecurity
                       and instability in the Middle East has become a
                       question of security and stability in Europe. In
                       addition, the armed conflict between Ukraine
                       and Russia, a Russia becoming increasingly
                       autocratic, the difficult negotiations with
                       Turkey, the protection of the EU’s external
                       borders, the relationship with the USA in light
                       of the forthcoming elections and its own
                       interests in Europe all need to be addressed.
                       Yet Europe, with its 28 Member States,
                       continues to reject strong and united action,
                       instead becoming further weakened by the
                       wide range of interests and political leanings
                       of its Member States. Can a common EU
                       foreign policy still emerge and succeed?                           Host: Ali Aslan, TV moderator and journalist,

15:15 – 16:30  SESSION III:
                      '...the first Casualty is Truth'. Europe’s
                      Media and the Information Crisis

                      In an increasingly disoriented time, orientation
                      via the media is more important than ever.
                      Yet, is the media still fulfilling this task? What is
                      their role in the heated atmosphere of terrorist
                      threats, masses of refugees, surveillance
                      mania, loss of political control and an
                      increasingly destabilised Europe? What effects
                      do propaganda, hate speech and terror have
                      on mass and social media? On the other hand,
                      what dangers do mounting limits on the press
                      in Europe – through restrictions, intimidation,
                      arrests – present and how can they be
