EU - United we stand

A lesson for All

EU - United we stand is an international project seeking to answer the big question of how a succesful European integration is possible. By engaging EU-citizens in an inter-generational dialogue and transnational discussions we  look deeper into existing narratives and common experiences.

Partner organizations in Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary and Poland invite citizens in their respective countries to discuss the way we perceived the breathtaking events of the years 1989/1990 back then – and how we assess them from today´s perspective. What did we feel, when the Berlin wall came down? Was it joy, fear, uncertainty? What did we expect when the socialist regimes stepped down? Have these expectations been met?

Participants will not only debate these questions within their respective national communities. They are also invited to attend international events organized by the partner organizations, focusing concrete questions of our common European remembrance.

Our project has gained momentum.

Three transnational meetings have taken place. Small delegations from the countries met in Budapest, Veliko Tarnovo and Angoulême. Impressions of the lively debates and links to substantive contributions can be found in the ACTIVITIES section.
