The aim of holding a European Humanities Conference is to discuss how the recommendations of the World Conference (Liège, 2017) and the global programs already created or in preparation, may be articulated with the strategies that European countries have in this area. In this sense, the European Conference will have as its structuring component the researchers and the research supporting entities, but should promote the participation, also, of other sectors (namely the field of definition of public policies and citizen participation)1.
On the other hand, with the CIPSH promoting the structuring of regional networks networking platforms, the Conference should enhance this process in the European area. The specific objectives will be built collaboratively between CIPSH, UNESCO and FCT in Portugal, welcoming the contributions of all International Federations of Humanities and, where appropriate, the European Commission2.
1 In particular UNESCO programmes with the collaboration of CIPSH (e.g. MOST-Management of Social Transformations; BRIDGES) and CIPSH with the collaboration of UNESCO (Global History of Humanity; Art and Society; World Of Humanities Report; Chairing).
