EU-funded research project IME (Identities and Modernities in Europe) has engaged since 2009 in an investigation of the diversity and commonalities among European identities in nine countries.

As a member of the consortium, ELIAMEP research team has been exploring the various ways in which these diverse self-definitions have been formulated and maintained in the case of Greece and has, thus, contributed to the comparative and qualititative findings of the project.

IME consortium, thus, has captured the current state of European identities and found what we call “moments of European identities”. The major findings from IME research, including various manifestations of European identities, their relationship to social cohesion, higher education, cultural diplomacy, will be discussed at this event “Who needs European identities today?” that is going to take place on Wednesday 29th February in Brussels.

For more information on the event see the invitation or visit the project’s website.
