1. Sorin Şipoş, European Societies and Border Identities

Introduction

The course and seminar aim at introducing the development of the European world since the end of Antiquity to present day. To a great extent, the understanding of certain realities in modern and contemporary society is based on a good knowledge of the evolution of society in Europe in the areas that are to become EU borders for a while.

The political ideas lying at the basis of political creations, of states or empires formation got shape in Middle Ages. The destiny of those living near political borders, particularly the linguistic one, was something special. If at the modern and contemporary epoch antagonism was the main relation between these communities, how can they become an element of bringing together communities so hostile before? More often than not, the fate of minorities was unhappy as compared to the majority.

Seeing the diversity and complexity of the relationships between the majority and the minorities provide students with a new image on the organisation and functioning of the European society in general and the border communities in particular.

The key words of the course are as follows: majorities, minorities, nations, religions, confessions, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, European Union, network society, border

 2.  Ioan Horga, Diversity and Interconnection at the EU Eastern Border

The course is designed to orient students to the challenges and opportunities involved in understanding and communicating with people belonging to different cultures, both domestically and internationally. In this process, an important place will be held by knowledge, understanding and promotion of diversity in Eastern Europe. Everyone will find it necessary and inevitable to communicate with members of different cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds every day of the week in their professional world. Each culture communicates differently. Some of these differences are minor and subtle; others are major (both subtle and obvious).

     In addition to looking at different cultures, the course will also examine the way news is disseminated among the various cultures of EU and of the implications in the patterns of this dissemination.

     The specific goals of this course are to: learn how differences in cultures influence the differences in communication; understand how to report effectively on different cultures; understand the patterns of worldwide news and information flow; understand how to practice professional communication with different cultures.

     Structure of the course:

  1. Demographical structures: local, national and regional realities in Eastern Europe
  2. European integration – stability factor and dialogue vector
  3. European instruments and good neighbourhood policy
  4. Intercultural dialogue and the role of media
  5. Political structures and means to implement the European agreements in Romania, Hungary, Ukraine and Moldova
  6. Ethnicity and its place within the EU
  7. Globalisation at the EU eastern border
  8. Local autonomy and personal autonomy. The relations between these notions and state structure

The direct beneficiaries of the project will be: 1.  the students who know neither the specific and particularities of different cultures in Europe, nor the important role media has to play in intercultural dialogue and in the dissemination of the image of Europe in the world. They will be introduced to one priority of the EU – dialogue between cultures and peoples – that is an important landmark for education and action within the EU.

The impact of the course on direct and indirect beneficiaries consists of the following: 1. Understanding the importance of diversity in the new Europe and the need to connect cultures; 2. Getting to know the particularities of different Eastern European countries; 3. Reducing communicational barriers; 4. Efficient conflict management; 5. Developing work groups to disseminate information by promoting individual and collective research of young students 6. Identifying the general framework and the particularities of local features of immigration process; 7. Building a system of comparison to the requests and expectations of minorities.

The main quantity indicators of the impact are the following: number of persons attending the course; degree of improving the outputs by disseminating the information relating to the course; degree of penetration of information on the level of the target group (direct and indirect beneficiaries); number of articles on the topic delivered during conferences and subsequently published.
