60 Years Since the Treaty of Rome- 60 Years of Europe

This presentation is a multimedia journey with Dokulive’s Ingo Espenschied. It is designed for large audiences of the general public & senior students. Two presentations will take place in Letterkenny on Monday 27th March to commemorate the Treaties of Rome.

March 27, 1957 – in the hall of the Musei Capitolini in Rome, the Treaties establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EUTRAOM) were signed by the leaders of six European countries. This launched the European Community, the foundation of the European unification process and today’s European Union.

In his new production ‘60 years since theTreaty of Rome – 60 years of Europe’, the renowned political scientist and lecturer,  Ingo Espenschied takes us on an exciting, live, multimedia journey through time on the big screen. This presentation shows the convoluted history of Europe’s last six decades.

What did the signatories of the Treaty of Rome achieve? How has Europe developed, what are its strengths and weaknesses, and where do we go from here?

The Treaties of Rome are considered to be one of the great milestones in the founding history of Europe. Through these treaties, the 1958 European Community was established.
