The International Conference on Cultural Diplomacy in the EU
"Crisis, Conflict, and Culture: The Role of Cultural Diplomacy in the European Project"
(Brussels, December 6th - 9th, 2011)
www.eu-culturaldiplomacy-conference.org
The EU & Cultural Diplomacy Conference is the first of a series of three conferences dedicated to enhancing awareness and understanding of international governing institutions and their role in promoting cultural diplomacy across the world. The conference, focused on the European Union, is an international conference organized by the ICD and other leading organizations in the home base of the EU—Brussels, Belgium.

The goal of this year’s conference is to facilitate exploration of the unique challenges currently facing Europe from the debt crisis, to crippling military engagements to the debate over increased political and economic union—funneled through a thorough understanding of the historical and theoretical foundations of the “European Project.”

Conference Participants
The conference is open to applications from diplomatic and political representatives, civil society practitioners, young professionals, students and scholars, private sector figures, journalists, and other interested stakeholders in international relations from across the world.
