The event to be held in Rome on 12 and 13 September, aims to highlight the importance of European cultural integration and the strategic role played by media in completing this integrating process.
The event is organised in the framework of the Project “The Promise of the EU” during the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, by the The Department of the European Policies of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers of the Italian Republic and the European Commission.
The project “The Promise of the European Union” is well-timed and arrives just when the role of the Union is being refined in the light of the new economic and social context of the 21st Century. The outcomes of this project intend to help the European Union Institutions’ policy-making.
“The Promise of the European Union” will examine three major questions:
- How much unity do Union citizens want and what are the areas where integration should take place?
- What would make the EU more democratic?
- What is the overall expectation of the Union’s citizens?
Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development, RAI, European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Fondazione MAXXI and FormezPA are partners in the event.
Admission is allowed upon invitation only.
