In this first installment of the ESC’s 2020-2021 series of virtual roundtables, we will use the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration as a springboard for discussing diversity within the EU. Our panel of experts will trace the origin and current meaning of the EU’s motto, “United in Diversity,” exploring both its goals and its limitations.
Audience Participation is encouraged.
