As the New Year begins, it is time to look back at what we achieved in 2017. For Nouvelle Europe, 2017 was a year of successful conferences, numerous articles and four, widely read dossiers on diverse topics.
The Genshagen Fondation close to Berlin lunched the call of application for it Summer School! This year's topic : "European Migration and Refugee Policy: Perspectives for a Common Approach"

2013, July 1st. You may have been on holidays, you may have stayed in your office hating everybody who was remotely close from anything similar to a beach. You also probably missed the entry into force of major amendments to the asylum laws in Hungary, changes that however have already a huge impact on the lives of asylum seekers living in the country.
Last October 2012, Nouvelle Europe dedicated a week to the European Citizens' Initiative, and notably interviewed François Dorléans. Charlotte Nørlund-Matthiessen, another co-founder of Sign, has now been interviewed for a study dedicated to the young generation of women in the EU (on Business O Feminin).
There are many examples of governments who put pressure on their citizens in various ways; some more brutally and some less. There are also many examples of situations (also in recent history) when citizens had enough and after a collection of many incidents, the smallest thing triggered a chain reaction, led to huge protests, and ended up changing the politics or the policies of the country.
In 2013, the European Forum Alpbach will deal with "Experiences and Values". From August 12 to 31, 4.000 people from over 60 countries will once again come to the Tyrolian mountain village of Alpbach to discuss and explore current issues in the interdisciplinary setting of our conference. We are calling for applications for scholarships which will enable students and recent graduates to participate in this equally fascinating and venerable event.
You are a young European citizen who cares about our future in Europe? The political and economic events of the last years have had an impact on your personal life? You are willing to actively shape the discussion? You dare to step up in front of an audience of approximately 400 people including high-ranking Austrian and European politicians and decision makers and tell them your story (in English)?
