Connecting Europe through History: Human Rights in Europe?
Footnote:EUROCLIO – European Association of History Educators – and The Europaeum – an association of leading European Universities – were awarded a grant by the European Union Education and Culture DG ‘Europe for Citizens’ Programme to help support a series of events and workshops across Europe on the theme “Human Rights in Europe? Tolerance, Democracy, Citizenship, Critical thinking and Multi-perspectivity as European Values” during the 2007-2008 academic school year. This project is in line with the objectives of the EU-Programme ‘to bring Europe closer to its citizens’ and to involve them in transnational cooperation activities, to develop a sense of belonging to common European ideals and achievements and to promote further European integration. Therefore the project is designed to run for several years within the Europe for Citizens-Programme, so that it may tackle other themes and reach higher sustainability.
