This fully student-run event is sponsored by the IPLI Foundation and organized by the students at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin.
Thanks to a highly interactive format, EPPC provides a unparalleled opportunity for future policy-makers to engage with prominent political leaders and experts to address the pressing challenges that Europe faces in the twenty-first century. Students are responsible for all aspects of the organization of this unique initiative. With each subsequent iteration of EPPC, students organizers are responsible for selecting the conference theme, choosing the speakers and selecting the country where EPPC is held.
Three key themes were examined at the conference:
1. (In)stability, Borders, security and the nation-state
2. (Dis)connection, Technology and the removal of borders
3. (In)visible, Borders within society
