ValEUs workshop ‘Critical Perspectives on European Values’, University Paris-8, 20-21 June, 2024

In its title, the Jean-Monnet-Network ‘ValEUs – Research & Education Network on Contestation to EU Foreign Policy’ prominently refers to ‘European values’. The project engages 20 partners all over the world and has, since its start in January 2024, already facilitated discussions that revealed a variety of perspecives on the key terms of the network. This first academic workshop of ValEUs, co-organised by Kolja Lindner at University Paris 8 and Amelie Kuter at European University Viadrina, aims to clarify the foundations of a constructive critical perspective on European values, engaging with their immanent critique, performativity and historical contextualisation.
