Foci of the conference include aspects of culture and culture policy in the eastward enlargement of the European Union and ensuing issues between West Europe and Central and East Europe and issues in culture and culture policy within the cultures and countries of Central and East Europe.
The aim and purpose of the conference include the intent to initiate knowledge-based discussion about issues of culture policy in Hungary (where the concept -- largely speaking -- is fraught with negative associations owing to the concept's history and meaning in the communist period of the country), in Germany, and the European Union.
In the wider context of globalization, culture, culture policy, and the European Union, it is evident that there is a lack of dialogue for a better understanding of the new Europe.

 European Capital of Culture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The European Capital of Culture is a city designated by the European Union for a period of one year during which it is given a chance to showcase its cultural life and cultural development.
Conceived as a means of bringing citizens of European Union (or EC, as then was) closer together, the European City of Culture was launched on June 13, 1985 by the Council of Ministers on the initiative of the Greek Minister of Culture Melina Mercouri.
The European Cities of Culture were designated on an intergovernmental basis until 2004; the Member States unanimously selected the cities most likely to welcome the event and the European Commission granted a subsidy to the selected city each year.

 European values - KOINONIA Greek Forum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Nat Gerrs at "Why Europe?" (http://www.ellopos.net/politics/eu_why-europe.html) writes that the values of the European Union are "stolen from their source" and because of this they "will be more and more corrupted in the course of time, they will become unrecognisable and then unthinkable, until Europe will collapse in the dust of hypocrisy, scheming and barbarity".
The jargon of cultural diversity that ignores the substance of what it proposed to ask, and the subsequent advertising campaign launched by the experts in Brussels is testimony to how far the dynamics of the culture industry, under the mechanism of Public relations has advanced and corroded the centre of political power in Europe.
These are European divisions and aberrations against the natural order that the culture industry now replicates unnaturally, and more fully by presenting a false consciousness of self-satisfied superficiality and conformism to the world, by wilfully ignoring the prohibitions and customs of any cultural group or community.

With a population of 40 million, Poland is the biggest of the 10 states that joined the European Union last year.
The effects of Poland's religious conservatism were felt in 2003, during the drafting of the European Constitution, when Poland took the lead in pressing for the preamble to refer to Europe's Christian heritage.
The trepidation felt in the European Union toward Poland's new rightist government was highlighted when the European Commission reminded Poland — on the morning after Kaczynski was elected — of its duties to abide by European laws on sex discrimination and the death penalty.

By "culture," we mean all practices and institutions that officially or informally contribute, through symbolic representation or reelaboration of material structures, to create meaning and in the process affect beliefs, values, ideas, and social arrangements.
The term "cultural policy" usually evokes state systems of support, such as the European Ministries of Culture, but such encouragements and restrictions are inherently a part of all social formations.
