European cohesion – particularly between northern and southern Europe – has suffered massively as a result of the economic and financial crisis, and the attempts at its resolution. Against this background, Das Progressive Zentrum has been commissioned by the German Federal Foreign Office to implement the transnational dialogue process “Dialogue on Europe – Rebuilding trust and redefining Europe in tough times”. The project seeks to build a new mutual understanding between and across countries, and is actively involving representatives from Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and Germany to this end. Particular emphasis is placed in the project on engaging a broad spectrum of multipliers from civil society, the media, politics, academia and industry, thus enabling longer-term cooperation on pan-European reform issues.
