Is there a European Identity?

1:00 PM–2:00 PM    ONLINE EVENT

Panel Discussion:

Is there a European Identity?

Thierry Grillet interviews writer Kamel Daoud (pre-recorded in French).

This session will explore whether the EU integration process has forged a sense of common identity (culturally and politically) among Europeans. Participants will also discuss how minorities and migrants relate to such an identity.

February 2, 2021: Thierry Grillet interviews writer Kamel Daoud (pre-recorded in French). The video will be posted on Columbia Global Centers | Paris YouTube Channel.

February 9, 2021 | 1pm (New York) | 7pm (Paris): Join Mark Lilla (Columbia), Riva Kastoryano (CNRS, Sciences Po), Magali Bessone (Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne), and Deborah Levy (writer), in a debate moderated by Mark Mazower (Institute for Ideas and Imagination, Columbia). 

This discussion is part of the series Debating the Future of Europe, organized by Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the European Institute, the Alliance Program, and Thierry Grillet, former director of Cultural Affairs at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF). The debates are co-sponsored by Columbia's Maison Française, Institute for Ideas and ImaginationAlumni Association, European Legal Studies Center, and the Columbia University Libraries. This series is made possible in part thanks to the support of the Erasmus + programme of the European Union and the Advisory Board of Columbia Global Centers | Paris.
