The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is pleased to announce the details of our forthcoming Weeklong Seminar for the program Cultural Diplomacy in Europe: A Forum for Young Leaders, which will take place in Berlin from 21st to 26th February 2010. The forthcoming Weeklong Seminar will focus on the following themes:
· Asses the impact of the Lisbon treaty on the unity of the European Union and the EU decision-making process.
· Examine the idea of a “United States of Europe” with a particular focus on foreign and security policy, economic policy, and influence as a global political player.
· Explore the reasons for the apparent rise of the right on the accession of new EU member states and the EU integration process.
· Consider the challenges of developing a pan-European migration policy and explore multilateral approaches to address this issue.

Who can apply?
The program is opened to all individuals with an interest in European relations and cultural exchange.

What will the Weeklong Seminar involve?
The program for the Weeklong Seminar will consist of lectures, seminars, workshops, and cultural activities in and around Berlin. The participants will meet with leading figures from the political, diplomatic, academic and civil society spheres to discuss the state of European relations and consider how they can be supported through organised cultural exchange.

What is the aim of the Weeklong Seminar?
The Seminar aims to inform the participants about the field of Cultural Diplomacy and its importance today, raise awareness of key issues in the European relations, create a network between the Seminar participants, and give them creative ideas and support for future initiatives they can organise.

What happens after the Seminar?
After completing the Weeklong Seminar, the participants become members of the Cultural Diplomacy in Europe Forum. They are then supported by the ICD in conducting research, in organising and developing leadership initiatives, and are invited to join the ICD Online Forum where they can network with the other Young Leaders from around the world. The Forum activity is aimed at creating sustainable initiatives that bring the European countries closer together.

We are looking forward to your contact,

With warm Regards.
