Since November 2017, the Irish government held a series of public and sectoral meetings, hearing the views in person and on-line of members of the public and representative organisations. The intention is that the views expressed on Europe will provide an input into the Irish Government’s contribution to the broader “Future of Europe” debate. This process culminated in the National Citizens’ Dialogue on 9 May 2018 in Royal Hospital Kilmainham.
The European Movement Ireland supports the Department in organising these events. Jillian van Turnhout is a vice-chair of the European Movement Ireland and as such was participating in the National Citizens’ Dialogue on 9 May.
