Creating links and innovative overviews for a new history reseach agenda for the citizens of a growing Europe (CLIOHRES.NET)

CLIOHRES is a Network of Excellence specifically designed to address the novel historical challenges, needs and research opportunities emerging from today's context of a growing and expanding Europe. In the view of the proponents, this is a vital area of endeavour, perhaps the most important and urgent task for building and strengthening the foundations of a peaceful, productive European community of citizens. Basic and unquestioned attitudes about ourselves and others are rooted in the ways that the scientific community in each country defines its research agenda. Historians create and cultivate selective views of the national or local past, which in turn underpin pervasive ideas about identities and stereotypes: national, religious, gender, political, etc. National historiographies today are still largely shaped by problems and preoccupations reflecting previous political and cultural contexts.
