Yuste Foundation Organises a Multidisciplinary Course to Analyse European Identity and Values

The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation and the University of Extremadura, in collaboration with the Valencia Catholic University Saint Vincent Martyr, have organised the course “European Citizenship, Identities and Values”, to be held from 4 to 8 October at the Royal Monastery of Yuste in the framework of the Foundation’s training programme Campus Yuste. (1/10/2021)

The course will address the need for the promotion of European Union values, such as respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality and human rights, in order to solve the problems that a constantly growing, multicultural and multi-religious society raises without it having to detach itself from its own identity.

By means of various presentations analysing the European Union from different points of view, such as history, culture, public policy, racism and xenophobia, religion and the future of the construction of Europe, the course will attempt to place value on the values necessary to build a solid European identity that may lead global alternatives that curb the different threats of coexistence and human rights, seeking solutions to the different challenges.

The course, organised in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe, is directed by the professor of the University of Extremadura, Jaime Rossell and by the delegate of the Foundation in Brussels, Miguel Ángel Martín. In addition, it counts with the participation of the director of the Spanish Observatory for Racism and Xenophobia (OBERAXE) of the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, Karoline Fernández; the Vice-President of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs of the European Parliament, Maite Pagazaurtundúa; of the former President of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain, Isaac Querub; the Spanish representative of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance of the Council of Europe and President of the Secretariado Gitano Foundation, Sara Giménez, and the Vice-President of the Spanish Federal Council of the European Movement, Eugenio Nasarre, among others.

The course has 130 registered students from Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Italy, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Portugal, Spain and Venezuela.
