Putting culture at the heart of EU international relations

As part of the EU strategy for international cultural relations, culture is becoming a key part of the activities of EU Delegations around the world. A series of articles on the European External Action Service website is profiling cultural initiatives organised in partner counters and demonstrates what the new strategy means in practice.



The EU strategy for international cultural relations aims to give culture a central role in the EU's relations with partner countries. It was adopted on 8 June 2016 and presented by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President Federica Mogherini.
