European external cultural relations | Expectations from the outside | publication
The Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (ifa) in Germany publishes the report of the 2012 conference 'European external cultural relations: Expectations from the outside'. Europe seen from the outside is one of the current ifa research projects and is carried out in partnership with EUNIC.
On 12 December 2012 around 80 experts from the fields of European cultural affairs and (European) external cultural relations, including representatives of cultural institutions and members of academia, met at the conference “European external cultural relations: Expectations from the outside” in order to discuss the perceptions and expectations for European external cultural relations from the outside, in particular in countries in Asia and Africa, since many European cultural co-operation projects focus on those regions.
The following key questions were discussed at the conference: How are European external cultural relations perceived in countries outside of Europe? What is expected of European external cultural relations in countries outside of Europe? What aspects influence the perceptions and expectations? How can EUNIC and other European institutions best use the findings of the conference in their ongoing work in the area of European external cultural relations?
The conference was organised by the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (ifa) and forms the basis for the EUNIC-Yearbook to be published in 2013.
