1960 unterzeichneten die BRD und Spanien eine Vereinbarung zur Anwerbung von GastarbeiterInnen. Für Deutschland war es das zweite Abkommen mit einem südeuropäischen Land, nachdem 1955 bereits mit Italien die erste bilaterale Anwerbungsvereinbarung geschlossen wurde. Anlässlich des 50-jährigen Jubiläums der Unterzeichnung des Anwerbeabkommens zwischen Deutschland und Spanien möchte die Veranstaltung „1960-2010: 50 Jahre spanische Einwanderung in der Bundesrepublik“ eine Bilanz des halben Jahrhunderts spanischer Einwanderung in Deutschland ziehen und die Erinnerung an diese Schlüsselepoche der bilateralen Beziehungen zwischen Deutschland und Spanien pflegen.

The International Congress Ideas of Europe / Ideas for Europe – placed under the patronage of the President of the European Commission, Mr José Manuel Barroso – seeks to promote the debate on different ideas of a European Community.

The European integrative process has not only intensified the relations between the economical and political pre-eminent powers and the new Eastern-European members, but furthermore it triggers the exchange between the ‘old’ and ‘new’ peripheries of the continent. All EU-members are presented to a much greater degree now in the media and the official discourses of the other members. The increase in mobility of the people adds to a growing density of the inter-peripheral relations in Europe.
