What are European values? Do they actually still exist? We cannot take for granted that what is enshrined in the International Treaties is still valid today. The social, economic, political and cultural context has changed considerably. Therefore, we have decided to start from the beginning. And by “beginning”, we mean here and now.
The “here and now” shows us a growing sense of urgency to understand the complexity of contemporary society, to act as responsible citizens in the interest of the Common Good and to direct our efforts particularly at situations of marginality, exploitation and injury to personal dignity.
