While the world continues searching for global solutions to global challenges, Europe is increasingly self-absorbed. What image of Europe is emerging in the light of the crises, refugees and migration? These topics were discussed on 23 October 2016 by two former participants of the CrossCulture Internships Programme (CCP), as well as two Goethe-Institute alumni. The four speakers shared their personal experiences on the 'Weltempfang' stage of the Frankfurt book fair in front of close to 150 spectators.

Moez Dhari from Tunisia works as a trainer for debates and discussions with 'Young Arab Voices' (British Council/Anna Lindh Foundation). He completed his internship with the CCP programme within the Landeszentrale für Politische Bildungsarbeit in Berlin.

Sonia Nakad from Beirut came in 2012 for three months to Tübingen am Neckar. She worked within the framework of her CCP internship for the Berghof Foundation/ Peace Education Tuebingen. She currently works as an independent peace educator in Beirut.

Angie Balata and Husam Hilali participated in the Kulturakademie NANO of the Goethe-Institut in 2015.
