EUinDepth: European Identity, Cultural Diversity and Political Change

The objective of the project is to identify how Europe is perceived by the EU countries and their closest neighbours, i.e. Russia and Moldova by discussing such issues as European identity and identity policies, geographical and cultural borders of Europe, cultural security, and carrying out cross-cultural surveys.

The EUinDepth project will contribute to the understanding of the notion ‘being European’, enhance collaboration in the fields of European identity and cultural diversity and help to develop expert recommendations for establishing long-lasting partnerships.
