5th Alaquàs Autumn University. Enrolment now open

The Universitat de València and the Jean Monnet Module for Citizens’ integration into EU democracy are organising the 5th edition of the Alaquàs Autumn University, under the title “Citizens’ participation into European Union democracy’. The European Union and its citizenship. The European Union and its citizenship”.


On 10 November, the Castell-Palau d’Alaquàs will host this Seasonal University, which celebrates its 5th edition this year. Aimed at the general public, this event aims to provide an in-depth knowledge of political and democratic rights and their exercise within the European Union.

The opening ceremony, at 9:30 a.m., will be attended by Antonio Saura Martín, Mayor of Alaquàs; Ester Alba Pagán, Vice-Principal for Culture and Society (UV); María Jesús García García, coordinator of the conference (UV); and a representative of the Valencian Provincial Council and Caixa Popular.

Afterwards, María Jesús García, professor in the UV Department of Administrative Law and director of the ‘Jean Monnet Module. Citizens’ participation into European Union democracy’, will give a lecture titled “Citizens’ participation into European Union democracy”.

Joan Romero González, full university professor of Human Geography (UV), will address the “Consequences of the pandemic and war in Europe”. Professor Romero will share with the audience his reflections on the crucial moment the European Union is undergoing, as the decisions taken at this time could determine whether the political project is consolidated or whether the existential and legitimacy crisis that has been evident for some time now is accentuated.

The Alaquàs Autumn University will end with a debate between the audience and the speakers, and will conclude with a closing ceremony.


Date From 5 october 2022 to 9 november 2022. 24h. Every day.
