European Corner at the Deutscher Stiftungstag 2014 in Hamburg

DSC_0908This was the second year I’ve had the opportunity to moderate the international part of the Deutscher Stiftungstag – the European Corner. It’s a great space for all those foundations interested in thinking outside the national box to explore future ideas they can duplicate, scale up and collaborate to develop together. The renowned sociologist, Professor Ulrich Beck kicked off this year’s discussion with a talk on Cosmopolitisation, which my panelists used to come to the conclusion that not only is the European project a process of Europeanisation, but of Europeanisations. Because the process is so different in different parts of Europe (beyond EU), for different societal groups (elite vs. non-elite, youth, political decision-makers, migrants, etc.). The conclusions and the text by Ulrich Beck will be made available on the Allianz Foundation’s website and/or @ http://www.stiftungen.org.
