Another Europe: the Book

Since our beginnings in the 1950s, ECF has been pursuing the idea of a Europe that goes beyond historical, cultural and political borders and proposes new ways of doing things. The Europe ECF imagines extends well beyond the EU, embracing the countries that touch our borders to the east and to the south. These guiding principles run through the pages of our new publication Another Europe, which brings together a treasure trove of insights and experiences from partners and participants working with us in the European Neighbourhood over the past 15 years.


15 Years in the Neighbourhood
Ivan Krastev in conversation with Philipp Dietachmair 

We take Another Europe as our starting point for a fascinating conversation between one of Europe’s most respected political scientists, Ivan Krastev, and ECF Programme Manager Philipp Dietachmair, who has been running our neighbourhood programmes for more than 10 years. We have divided the interview into five parts to allow a deeper look and time for reflection on the history of the role of culture in the larger European project.

We also invite our readers to join our brand new lab Another Europe - Samizdat dedicated to the book on our online community space ECF Labs. You can join the discussion on issues around these themes and download more texts about our work in the EU Neighbourhood, as featured in our most recent publication.
