Workshop 7: From national narratives to shared memories: Is a pan-European memory possible?

Memories and the political discourse on history and the past are a dangerous game and can disrupt not only the fabric of societies, but also spark international conflicts. How can the perspectives of ‘Others’ be incorporated into a country’s national history? Is there a European standard for dealing with ‘history’? Where does action still need to be taken? The workshop is going to develop basic hypotheses and make recommendations for further citizenship education projects.

Inputs: 
Andrea Mork, European House of History (Belgium)
Benedikt Widmaier, Haus am Maiberg -
Akademie für politische und soziale Bildung (Germany)
