Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 558137-CITIZ-1-2014-1-FR-CITIZ-CIV
Title: Bridging National Perspectives on the European Union
Summary
The project originates from 3 observations. First, there is a growing disconnect between European citizens and the European project. This was illustrated during the European elections. Second, the EU seems to be lacking an overarching rationale that most citizens can agree with - it used to be peace in Europe, then economic prosperity. Today nothing stands up as firmly. This will be a great challenge for the upcoming leadership. Third, each member state seems to focus on shaping national interests on the EU rather than developing common ones. This state of play is a breeding ground for eurosceptic arguments and casts a shadow on endowing more legitimacy to the EU. This project aims to contribute to a new European dynamic by confronting national perspectives on the EU and by shedding light on potential points of convergence across Europe and on one or two mobilising political projects, which could be crucial for the successful future of Europe.At the core of this project, national experts from each of the partner institutes will debate among themselves as well as with citizens on leading questions. All experts work on the relations between their country and the EU. We will rely on presentations and papers. The debates will take place during small, targeted workshops, and the final conferences, as well as during the editing process, which will be inclusive. The final analysis will then summarise the contributions and identify common grounds, which can help advance a European common interest. Choosing experts as the target group is relevant, because they are opinion-shapers and -leaders. They may be well-informed on the EU, but they seldom confront their analyses with those from other countries on key, overarching issues and engage in debates with citizens from various backgrounds. The aim is to help them broaden their perspectives so that their comments and analyses on the EU take even more the European interest into consideration.
