The Chapel of Europe, Brussels, 5 December, 2017, 16.00-18.00

The Schuman Symposium is an annual exploration of the spiritual dimension of the values of the European project, including human dignity and solidarity, and of the necessity of this dimension for the common good in Europe and globally.


The symposium begins with an address focusing on some aspect of spirituality and politics, followed by a personal testimony by a leading public figure on spirituality as lifesource for their political engagement. A panel of informed observers will then offer a review of the past year and a preview of the coming year in terms of the promotion or otherwise of these values within Europe.


The next Schuman Symposium will be held on Tuesday December 5, 2017 this year (prior to the European Parliament Prayer Breakfast the following morning), in the Chapel of Europe, Rue Van Maerlantstraat 22, 1000 Brussels.

More details to be posted when confirmed.
