More Cultural Europe in the WorldNew study by Damien Helly for More Europe
The study commissionned by More Europe - external cultural relations and conducted by Damien Helly, visiting professor at the College of Europe, throughout 2011.
Modern diplomacy requires the development of new thinking and skills to face global challenges and changing societies. A new European approach towards external relations, based on the promotion of fundamental values, two-way dialogue, and the recognition of the role of civil society is urgently needed.
MORE EUROPE - external cultural relations is a cultural civil initiative, composed of a public-private partnership of foundations, civil society networks and national cultural institutes, whose objective is to convince politicians and policy-makers to place cultural relations – one of the strongest assets that Europe has - in the heart of the EU’s external affairs.
