Democracy and European Emerging Values

Centre Maurtis Coppieters and the European Free Alliance youth have compiled texts from more than 17 youth activists and academics to reflect upon the future of Europe and its emerging trends.

Defining the concept of self-determination is not the easiest thing to do. The first article of the United Nations Charter, which defines self-determination has been applied to various extents in the recent history.

A universal right – that is what the self-determination principle is. No more, no less! And just as with democracy, human rights, gender equality and sexual equality, there should be no limit to any universal right. Even if it were illegal, it would still remain a universal right.

This collective work reflects upon those ideas from a youth perspective.
