“Unity in Diversity” has been the motto of the European Union since 2000. Europe and the European project stand for freedom, peace and solidarity among nations – and for a community based on tolerance and interest in one another on the part of many different cultures, traditions and languages, whose preservation is the responsibility of all. Nevertheless, current debates reveal that the project of a united Europe cannot be taken for granted. Can the European project prevail in the future? And how can policy and culture fill it with new life?
Artists and academics, publicists and protagonists from public life, will all take positions on Europe’s present and future – in background analyses, dialogues and visions.
