Organized by NYU Professor Michael Minkenberg, the conference addresses the question of how cultural and religious identities have informed the shaping of boundaries in European integration. It will give particular attention to the interaction and interrelations between players and ideas in this process: religious-confessional traditions as they inform the European idea and project as well as their contributions to boundary drawing; key actors, such as the national governments, the major parties, and the churches; and the various nation states, old and new members of the European Union as well as their cultural-religious alliances and conflicts, such as in 500
