Why Nobody Falls in Love with a Common Market: The Unequal Effectiveness of Cross-border Interactions in Fostering European Identity

Brussels, Belgium

8 October 2013

Exploring European identity and the ways it can be fostered in the lives of ordinary EU-citizens, this seminar is part of the UACES Arena series. Theresa Kuhn, Lecturer at the Freie Universiteit Berlin, will show why the impact of current policies is limited and discuss possible future improvement.

The ERASMUS student exchange and town-twinning programmes are well-known examples of cross-border interactions, but what other policies exist to enhance the development of an EU-identity, and how effective are they? Theresa Kuhn will give a presentation of her research on the subject. She has studied EU citizens that engage in various kinds of cross-border interactions, in which countries, and how this relates to the common support for the EU as an institution and whether these interactions actually foster a European identity or not.

The seminars are hosted by Edelman The Centre at Rue du Tr�ne 4, 2nd floor, B-1000 Brussels from 12:30 to 14:00 (with a sandwich lunch provided from 12:00 to 12:30). To register, please follow the weblink.

This event is part of the UACES Arena, which is organised by UACES and Edelman|The Centre in cooperation with the University of Kent at Brussels. UACES Arena invites leading scholars to challenge conventional wisdom in the policy-making world and to present new ideas for a changing Europe.

This seminar was funded with the support of the Lifelong Learning programme of the European Union.
