Second workshop of the “EAO – focus on European politics education 2016-2020“ project
The European Academy Otzenhausen (EAO) hosted the second workshop within the framework of the “EAO – focus on European politics education 2016-2020” on June 28th and 29th 2016. The project is run by the ASKO Europa-Stiftung (AES) and the EAO in cooperation with the Institute for European Politics (IEP). Based on the findings of the previous workshop in Saarbrücken in April 2016, fifteen participants from the EAO, ASKO Europa Stiftung, and Young European Federalists (JEF), discussed European politics with representatives of the IEP and academics. The objective was to identify subjects, which would become increasingly relevant for the educational purposes of the EAO.
The overarching categories were defined as the following:
- Europe of its citizens (Chair: Julian Plottka, IEP)
- Europe of freedom (Chair: Katharina Borngässer, JEF)
- Europe as a social union (Chair: Richard Steinberg, IEP)
Dr. Otto Schmuck (Vice President of the Union of European Federalists, Europe of its citizens), Professor Dr. Siegfried Magiera (University of Speyer, Europe of freedom), and Angelika Schenk (M.Sc. University of Bremen, Europea as a social union) attended the working groups as experts.
