Europe Day 2017

Thursday, May 11, 2017  University of Haifa

The Contemporary Role of Germany and the EU in the Middle East

The EU - in its early version as a common market - came about as an attempt to bring a halt to hostilities among European countries, especially France and Germany. How relevant is this experience for the current Middle East situation today, and what role could the EU and Germany as its member state play in facilitating similar developments? It is true that the driving force behind European integration from its very beginning was a clear desire of the then European leaders to overcome old differences and assure a peaceful development of Europe for future generations of the European continent. This idea of peace is still very much relevant today. It represents a condition sine qua non for the development and a successful future of all the peoples of the Middle Eastern region. A comprehensive and peaceful solution to the Israeli-Arab conflict in general and Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular, is a strategic priority for the European Foreign Policy in general and the German Foreign Policy in specific. 


Besides a program for school kids and a European Market there will also be a conference held during that day.

You can find more information about the program here as well as a flyer with short information here and a Conference Booklet.

Here you can find a reflexion of Palina Mahilina, who conducted a session about Germany and the German language as a part of the program for the High School Kids as well as some pictures.
