Changing the table

A podcast on the political participation of New Europeans.


In a vibrant democracy everyone should be able to have a say in the decisions that affect them. But European democracy has a problem. People from diverse origins and cultural backgrounds are an integral part of European society. Yet, they face many barriers that hinder their ability to take part in civic and political life.

On this podcast, instead of only empowering people to take a seat at the table, we look into changing the table itself. Join our host, Seden Anlar, as she talks with community leaders, researchers and policy-makers about how we can remove barriers and make European democracy inclusive and fit for an increasingly diverse and internationally mobile society.

‘Changing the Table’ is produced by the New Europeans Initiative, which is a project of the Migration Policy Group.
