Lecture with Simon Hix

On 17 May 2011 the Centre for European Politics was co-hosting a lecture with Professor Simon Hix from London School of Economics and Political Science . The lecture took place in the Ceremonial Hall of the University of Copenhagen and was arranged by the research cooperation EURECO.

Simon Hix is first and foremost known for his research about EU’s problems with legitimacy due to a democratic deficit. It was exactly this debate that was the subject of his lecture “The Emergence of Democratic Politics in the EU”.  

It was a most energetic and argumentative Simon Hix who met the students, researchers and interested parties who had shown up to gain insight into what the EU lacks in order to call itself truly democratic and how one can try to remedy EU’s legitimacy deficit.
