Commissioned by More Europe, on behalf of the European Commission (DG EAC)
The Preparatory Action on “culture in external relations” was a project of the European Commission to support the policy reflection at EU level on how to strengthen and further develop culture in the EU external relations. It was aimed at formulating recommendations for a new strategy on culture in the EU external relations. The inquiry covered 54 countries – the 28 EU Member States, the 16 countries included under the European Neighbourhood Policy and the 10 Strategic Partnership countries.
KEA participated in the research project as part of a consortium led by Goethe Institut together with the British Council, the European Cultural Foundation, the Danish Cultural Institute, Institut Français, Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen and Bozar.
