Fundamental Rights, Citizenships and Identities in Changing Societies
The Europe of Rights Community College took place on September 14th-23rd 2004 at the retreat and group meeting centre Casa Cares in Reggello (Florence).
35 young Europeans from 17 countries attended this Community College event, concerning the role of fundamental rights in societies that are rapidly transforming, still keeping in mind the universality of human rights.
During the lectures, workshops and debates, the participants discussed about European identity, the role of religion in human rights and new rights. A final document on these issues was approved as an expression of the ideas shared by the participants. Three groups took one chapter each to express, in the form of articles, the principles they considered most important. The articles were then exchanged and discussed in the groups and proposals for amendments were presented by group representatives at a plenary session. Each proposal was discussed by all participants and a compromise was reached using the consensus method. In the end the whole document was one by which every participant could feel represented.

In charge of the Europe of Rights Community College is the ACC Italy Committee. Eva Valvo from the Board together with Marzia Pistolesi, Peter Ciaccio and Silvia Cardi are the members of the Committee.
