Cultural Cooperation within the Wider Europe and Across the Mediterranean: Issues at Stake and Proposals for Action

This report analyses the outcomes of the European Cultural Foundation's seminar series within its "Enlargement of Minds" programme. It addresses the new context in which European cultural cooperation will be carried out, analyses current cultural cooperation mechanisms and means within the wider Europe and from the "neighbourhood perspective", and proposes new areas and forms of action concerning cultural cooperation beyond EU frontiers. It concludes that combating cultural ignorance and ensuring closer cultural ties among EU members and their new neighbours would significantly further the development of an open and inclusive European space. It recommends the establishment of a Regional Cultural Development Fund with a view to promote and strengthen regional cultural cooperation and encourage transnational partnerships. It refers to the proposal of the European Cultural Foundation to create a "European Laboratory of Cultural Cooperation" to enhance transnational information capacities in the field of culture.
