Pozuelo de Alarcón (Spain), June 18, 2005.  Francisco de Vitoria University’s Robert Schuman Institute of European Studies recently organized a course on “The European Union in the World,” in collaboration with Ayuntamiento de Patones de Arriba (Madrid).

The course consisted in a four-day meeting between university professors, academics, and European political personalities to analyze the exterior element of the EU in light of the significant changes that have been taking place in recent years.

The conferences and round tables dealt with such themes as “unity in diversity,” “Europe as a cradle of culture,” and “the phenomenon of immigration,” as well as issues related to the politics of security and international relations.

Those participating included, among others, José María Gil-Robles, President of the European International Movement and former President of the European Parliament; Carlos Carnero, Deputy in the European Union and Member of the Convention for the Future of Europe; Francisca Sauquillo, president of the Movement for Peace, Disarmament, and Freedom; the Ambassadors of Turkey, Croatia, and Macedonia (candidate nations); and several others holding high responsibilities in the EU.  In representation of the Spanish government, Juan Arístegui, from the Ministry of External Affairs’ Secretariat of State for the EU, gave the closing conference.
