“Unity in diversity”: really?

This video presents historical steps through which culture was integrated into the discourse of European institutions.

This video explains how culture was put on the European agenda.

The need to build a European unity appeared as essential after the World Wars, but was put into action especially in 1973 with the Copenhagen summit. In 2000, the slogan “united in diversity” was introduced.

The video then explains how Europe evolved with regards to the tolerance of cultural diversity, and points out today’s challenges such as the integration of Islam, of the Roma communities and the fight against racism.
