Conference Venue:

Delegation of the European Union to the
UN and other International Organizations in Geneva
Rue du Grand-Pré 64, Room E

The International Relations Program of Webster University Geneva, with the support and participation of the Permanent Mission of Italy in Geneva and the EU Delegation to the UN and Other International Organizations in Geneva.will organize a half-day conference on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Rome Treaty creating the European Community.

This event is part of the numerous international conferences and seminars organized by Webster University since 1996 with the active support and participation of the Geneva-based international organizations and diplomatic community on major international political, economic and humanitarian issues.

The signing of the Rome Treaty was one of the principal stages and one of the most far-sighted acts in the history of European integration. Together with the development and consolidation of the Western Community, it has been one of the most impressive and successful examples of institutional innovation and community building among free and sovereign nations. This process that started in the second half of the 1940s has continued over the decades well into the 21st century.

As indicated in the title the principal questions to be addressed by the speakers will be where Europe is and ought to be going in the future, in order to maintain the results achieved so far and what is required to assure the peace, freedom and prosperity of it peoples in the decades to come.

The seminar is open to the diplomatic community, international organizations, students and the general public.
