On October 4, 2018, a new conference in Cascais will discuss the Portuguese political system. The Estoril Institute for Global Dialogue is in charge of this event, in a partnership with other entities. Click here to know more.

 

The first subject to be discussed during the Portugal Talks will be ‘voter turnout’. We believe that, in order to reform the Portuguese political system, we must first understand why ‘voter turnout’ is decreasing or why the public interest in their political leaders is not the same as it used to be.

The Scientific Committee of the first Portugal Talks is presided by Nuno Garoupa who is joined by Marina Costa Lobo, Pedro Magalhães and Catarina Santos Botelho.

A working group will be established with the task of producing a final report with proposals aimed at reducing electoral abstention.
