During the debate candidates elaborated on their positions around three broader themes, economy, euroscepticism and foreign policy. In many cases they came up with federalist proposals which we collected and present to you here, candidate – by –candidate in the form of a graphic.
The graphic presents a thumbs-up every time one of the four candidates, Jean-Claude Juncker, Martin Schulz, Guy Verhofstadt or Ska Keller, refers along his or her reply to a point that is in line with federalist principles. Each point on the grid reflects on the exact quote made by the candidate.

European Federalists [UEF] and Young European Federalists [JEF] gathered all over Europe to watch and discuss.
