Welcome to More Europe
Modern diplomacy requires the development of new thinking and skills to face global challenges and changing societies. More Europe is a new approach towards external relations, based on the promotion of fundamental values, two-way dialogue, and the recognition of the role of civil society. 'More Europe' is a campaign which aims 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.
We, Europeans, undoubtedly are examples, for the very simple reason that we claim this role for ourselves. However, how well do we live up to it? Europe is capable of self-criticism, and probably it is the only continent where you find a self-critical approach. This is why European cultural policy has to have an open attitude in the view of the world and must be full of self-criticism, in a world that is no longer capable of self-criticism.
