Visit of European religious leaders to the EC: welcome and round table

115 views

On 30 May 2013, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and László Surján, Vice-President of the EP (EPP, HU), received representatives from Christian, Muslim and Jewish religions and from the Hindu community from all over Europe. Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, also took part in the meeting held under the motto 'Putting citizens at the heart of the European project in times of change'. The participants engaged in an open discussion on how to intensify the dialogue with citizens and societal organisations on the future of Europe and about the fundamental, individual and collective rights that are guaranteed by European citizenship. The contribution of the representatives of churches and religious communities directly fed into the broader, on-going Europe-wide debate amongst citizens, businesses, civil society and government organisations, in the context of the European Year of Citizens 2013.
