Apart from 37 paper presentations in ten different thematic panels, the conference also offered training sessions on the PIREDEU integrated database. The conference was held in parallel with the annual dissemination conference of the European Union Democracy Observatory (EUDO). More than 150 experts from the PIREDEU community, representatives of each of the EUDO Observatories and other experts, policy-makers, civil-society representatives and media exponents took part in the two events.
