In a global melting pot, how we relate to one another’s culture is an issue of the greatest importance. It involves a level of understanding of different cultures, languages and faiths. This year is the European Year of intercultural dialogue and the European Parliament and its President are determined to draw attention to the need for a bridge between different cultures. As the elected home to representatives from 27 nations, the Parliament is a place where languages and cultures meet.
This focus draws attention to some of the people who have visited the Parliament to talk about intercultural dialogue as well as President Pöttering’s thoughts on the subject.
