The Slovenian Paneuropean Movement has organised the international conference entitled “Multidimensionality of European Foreign Policy”, which took place from 21 to 23 February 2014 in Ljubljana (City Hotel Ljubljana).
The international conference is part of the European Citizens for European Foreign Policy project, which is supported by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union. The conference was granted high patronage of the European Parliament and organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia.
Franco Frattini attended the conference moderating the panel EU Foreign Policy: European Parliament and EU citizens, with the participation of Ivo Vajgl, MEP (Slovenia), Tanja Fajon, MEP (Slovenia), Davor Ivo Stier (Croatia).
Franco Frattini’s quotes:
Frattini: Lampedusa is not Italy’s problem, Lampedusa is a door to Europe.
Frattini: Freedom of movement (Schengen or visa-free regime) is the most tangible message that Europe is there.
Frattini: foreign policy is not just a thing of elites. If sub-Saharan Africa explodes, Europe’s security will be affected.
Frattini: In Libya we won the war, but are losing the peace.
Frattini: Right to happiness is having an optimistic view despite problems. Combined with firm action, this leads to a good future.
