On 14 October 2021 the Committee on Culture and Education and the Committee on Foreign Affairs will hold a joint public hearing on “Culture in the EU's external relations”.

Culture in external relations is the topic for the upcoming public hearing organised jointly by the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Committee on Culture and Education on Thursday, 14 October 2021. The Members together with the invited experts will exchange views on how culture could better feature in the EU's external relations as a soft power to foster sustainable economic and social development, to promote peace and fight radicalisation, and to strengthen cooperation on protecting cultural heritage. In 2017 Parliament adopted a resolution entitled "Towards an EU strategy for international cultural relations". The Public hearing will look into the implementation of the resolution and suggest possible avenues for further future developments in the cultural diplomacy field.
