contextualisation of the project
Contextualisation of the project

Cultural diversity has been and still is one of the core values of Europe. The progressive enlargements of the European Union, on the one hand, and the effects of globalisation, on the other, have created a more interconnected and interdependent Europe, in which cultural diversity and the multicultural character of many countries have become more evident. Consequently, intercultural dialogue –understood as an opening interaction based on the recognition of difference and multiplicity- has been intensified in all communication levels and is becoming a central issue in fostering European identity. With the establishment of the “European Year of Intercultural Dialogue” (EYID)1 in 2008, the European Union has recognised the importance of cultural diversity and cultural dialogue as a unique advantage in Europe. The main idea of the EYID is to strengthen a dialog within civil society, especially among young people, in the European Union and beyond.

“Dialog” – perhaps in a broader sense (in terms of a stronger relationship with the EU’s immediate neighbours)- is also the principal objective of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), developed in 2004. Announcing the ENP’s conference on September 7 2007, Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner said: (…) “it is essential that we listen carefully to the interests of our neighbours (…)”2. It is obvious that this statement clearly emphasises the EU’s willingness to establish/open a “dialog” with their neighbours in order to achieve common interests.

focus of the papers
Focus of the papers

Like the opening event of the EYID (Ljubljana on 7-8 January 2008) with an international conference entitled “Intercultural Dialogue as Fundamental value of the EU”, this International Seminar aims to discuss on intercultural dialogue as a core value of Europe and also to analyse ENP focusing in different aspects:

  • Role of the European Parliament in intercultural dialogue and European neighbourhood policy (ENP)
  • European governance in the field of intercultural dialogue with people from EU eastern border
  • Relation between the closed and the open in intercultural dialogue
  • Relation between memory and identity in intercultural dialogue and the ENP
  • Relation between confessional and ethno-national borders in the Carpathian region
  • Promoting intercultural dialogue in the Carpathian region
  • Civic dimension of the ENP
  • Intercultural dialogue within the EU
  • Intercultural dialogue along the EU’s borders (paying special consideration to the Eastern European Countries)
  • ENP’s concrete policies (national, regional and sub-regional cooperation)
