Synthesis - Virginie Timmerman

On 20 June 2013, Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute organised in Paris and in cooperation with EuroCité and Europartenaires the third seminar of a whole cycle about the European public space "Heading towards the European elections" around the topic "Europe: symbols and memory(ies)".

The cycle and the session were introduced by Jean-Noël JEANNENEY, President, Europartenaires and moderated by Frédéric MÉNAGER, Secretary General, EuroCité.

A debate took place between:

- François FORET, Member of the Political Science department of l'Université Libre de Bruxelles
- Bernard RICHARD, advanced degree in History (agrégé), former attaché culturel at the French Embassies in Chile, Equator and Egypt
- Philippe PERCHOC, Post Doctoral Fellow at CECRI, Université Catholique de Louvain

The seminar was concluded by Yves BERTONCINI, Director of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute.

Virginie Timmerman, research assistant at Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, summarise this seminar around three main elements:

1. The EU in search of symbols and a single memory

2. European symbols of today and tomorrow

3. The absence of symbolism in a peaceful and depoliticised Europe

Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, Eurocité and Europartenaires would like to thank the Representation of the European Commission in France for hosting this cycle.
