College of Europe: Public Debate on Identities and Values between the EU and its Neighbours

The Natolin campus of the College of Europe invites students, professors, experts and all interested to a public debate entitled:

“A Wider Europe? Debate on Identities and Values between the EU and its Neighbours”

The debate takes place in the Royal Theatre, The Old Orangery, in the Royal Łazienki Park in Warsaw on Monday 23 October 2017.

The members of the student panel representing countries of the European Union and the European Neighbourhood are: Eléonore GARNIER, Albert HAYRAPETYAN, Mikkel KELSTRUP, Anna SIWIERSKA, Laura WHETHERLY and Eya YOUNSI.

The debate, organized by the European Civilization Chair and the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair is moderated by Professor Richard BUTTERWICK-PAWLIKOWSKI and Professor Tobias SCHUMACHER.

This debate explores the diversity of identities and values in the shared spaces between the European Union and its neighbours. It focuses not merely on the “export” of “European standards” to neighbouring countries in North Africa, the Middle East, the Caucasus, Eastern Europe, and the western Balkans, but ventures into shared civilizational heritages, overlapping identities and values, and neighbours’ expectations of the EU. In sum it is intended to inspire a broader and a longer view of “Europe”.

This is the second time that the Natolin campus of the College of Europe is organizing a student debate at the Royal Łazienki Park. Last year, a debate entitled “Security for Europe in a Time of Crisis” took place in the Łazienki Palace. To learn more about this event and see the picture gallery click here.
