About Euro Agora

Euro Agora is a subsidiary of Sustensis focusing on reforming democracy. You can watch a short introduction to Euro Agora here. To reform democracy we should perhaps rediscover its roots when it was practiced at the Athenian Agora 2,500 years ago. Like then, we may need to ask a question which system of governance serves human needs best. Thanks to the latest technology it may now be possible to create a new type of democracy, by merging the best features of direct and representational democracy into a Consensual Presidential Democracy. It is a system of democracy aimed at governing with maximum consensus, where the voice of the ‘losing’ minority is always taken into account. It gives the President exceptionally strong powers against the strongest accountability and recall procedures, to enable him to play a crucial role as a conciliator and moderator between two opposing parties, each represented by one Vice President. 

But Euro Agora also facilitates complex political debates using our Consensual Debating approach. It can be applied for debates such as the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE), launched by the EU on 9 May 2021. Similarly, as in a book where Table of Contents is summarised in chapter headings, here topics become top-level tabs. As you move from left to right, the numbered top level tabs describe the problem in a logical order. Individual topics do not stand on their own but are shown in a broader context, providing a vital link to other topics. To facilitate debates, each top-level tab has two main sub-tabs: INFO (describing the content) and POLIS (enabling you to debate).

You may read the content and leave comments without registering. But you need to register to take part in a debate. You can leave questions or suggestions at this website by filling in the Contact form.
