Europe Day Quiz

Monday 9 May 2011 @ 7:00pm

Free Buffet

To mark Europe Day 2011 the European Documentation Centre is organising a light-hearted EURO-QUIZ to test your knowledge of all things European – current affairs, the people and countries of Europe, food and drink, history, sport and the arts (and a few questions about the European Union).

There is no cost to take part, and a buffet with wine and soft drinks will be provided. During the evening we will be taking a collection for charity.

Make up a team of up to four and sign up by contacting edc@cardiff.ac.uk by 4 May 2011

The Commission presents its initiatives for a more structured, comprehensive, rapid-response approach from the EU to the migration challenges in the Mediterranean. The Commission initiatives cover various aspects of migration such as strengthened border control and Schengen governance, better targeted legal migration, enhanced dissemination of best practices on integration, completion of the Common European Asylum System, and a strategic approach for relations with third countries on migration. These initiatives come in addition to the urgent short-term measures already taken by the Commission to deal with the migration situation in the Mediterranean and migration pressures on frontline Member States.
