Agora Europe, a series on the European political space co-founded by Étienne Balibar, Nadia Urbinati and Caterina Di Fazio, returns at Columbia University to present Charta 2020, the first charter of European public goods.
Charta 2020 is a vision for a democratic and egalitarian European Union and a demand to recognize 20 European public goods essential to reshaping any future European political space. By definition, a public good is a good that eludes both rivalry and exclusion, a good made available for everyone, such that no one will be competing with another for them, nor be excluded from their use. Charta 2020 is promoted by Agora Europe and has been collectively written by many international activists and academics at the European University Institute on February 15th 2019. It was first presented at the European Parliament on March 20th, then at the Italian Parliament on April 16th and at Maastricht University Studio Europa on April 29th in occasion of the Spitzenkandidaten debate. The transnational joint launch of Charta 2020 is scheduled for Europe Day on May 9th, 2019.
