Opis projektu2017 marked the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome that reflect on the state of the EU, the future of Europe and the integration process. In the same year, the White Paper on the future of Europe maps out strategies and paths to identify challenges facing Europe in the upcoming years. One of the challenges is clearly identified in the growing mistrust in EU institutions and the integration process.
In the recent years Europe is facing an immigrant crisis with more than 59, 5 million people forced to flee their countries of origin because of persecution, conflict, and violence or human rights violations. This continuous immigrant flow increases the tensions among European citizens and contributes to the growing scepticism in EU policies. The flow of migrants from diverse backgrounds accelerates changes in the cultural environment within the host countries. Cultural diversity may evoke fear and rejection within national communities, and prompt stereotyping, racism, xenophobia, intolerance and discrimination.
The project “My Multi-faced Europe” stimulates an informed debate on the future of Europe in the context of the immigrant flow and the changing cultural map of Europe. Through this debate, the project intends to foster intercultural dialogue between migrant and local communities. One of the aims of the project is the juxtaposition of participants viewing cultural diversity as enrichment to those who see it as a threat. In this way the project will challenge the perception of migrants as a threat which is an integral part to Euroscepticism.
The project will focus on managing cultural diversity in a democratic and non-violent way and to bridge the divide between local and migrant communities through shared activities. Another project objective is to create an environment where the groups can discuss and share their vision on the future of Europe. The project will introduce the European Union, discuss the subjective and objective meaning of the European core values and enhance a sense of European community and belonging.
