The federal constituency – a way out of the federal deadlock ?

Wednesday 22 March 2023 from 5 to 7pm
at the University Foundation and on Zoom

The event will be devoted to the proposal of a federal constituency (circonscription fédérale, federale kieskring). The introductory panel will consist of Egbert LACHAERT (voorzitter Open VLD), Peter DE ROOVER (fractievoorzitter Kamer N-VA), Anne LAMBELIN (vice-présidente PS), Christian BEHRENDT (ULiège & KU Leuven) and Petra MEIER (UAntwerpen).

The conversation will be moderated, as usual, by Béatrice DELVAUX (Le Soir) and Karel VERHOEVEN (De Standaard).
