For the Region

Recent political incidents in the 21st century show that peace and democracy in Europe cannot be taken for granted. The establishment of the European Coal and Steel Community as a value-based connectivity matrix is ​​subject to constant change and requires an active education policy and consistent civil society participation. Against the background of a joint democracy, the prerequisites should be created for a reflected examination of the history, the present and the future of the EU and Europe.
