Focus will be on an applied reflection and policy assessment of the cultural and value basis of the European integration process, seen from an internal and external perspective. Special attention will be given to the specific sources and references to imagine Europe’s future as a plural entity and a socio-economic model shaped by a community of shared values, spaces and encounters as well as to the references and sources for Europe’s role and responsibility in a plural and globalizing world.

  • Session 1 will deal with "Human Rights and Value driven Dialogues in Europe";
  • Session 2 focuses on "Value driven foundations of Europe";
  • Session 3 will be devoted to "Perspectives of a value oriented Europe in the World".
