Beyond the Nation State - Cultures make Europe; Historic speech to Europe: Denis de Rougemont, 6/11 at BOZAR, Brussels. 

How relevant are the ideas of Denis de Rougemont on the role of Europe as a political and cultural project today, in light of the dramatic rise in nationalism in Europe these last few years? Celebrating its 60th anniversary, ECF will put in the spotlight a historical speech by Denis de Rougemont, ECF’s founding father to be read by Raymond Georis, former Director of ECF.
