Eastwest European Institute
Founded by Claudio Corbino, President of Associazione Diplomatici and CWMUN CEO, and Giuseppe Scognamiglio, Director of the EASTWEST Magazine, the EASTWEST European Institute (EWEI) has been founded with the aim of strengthening the international dimension of the network and the quality of the training proposal of Associazione Diplomatici and CWMUN. Thanks to EWEI, all Associazione Diplomatici & CWMUN activities will be further expanded with specific study initiatives, and simulations of the main European institutions, in particular the European Commission. The new projects will be held in many capitals such as Paris, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Brussels and will have the function of urging young people to change their vision on the values and functions of the European Union. Each project will take place in prominent institutional locations with the support of local authorities that, from time to time, will be hosting such activities. As per its protocol, the EWEI Scientific Committee will monitor all Associazione Diplomatici activities (which will – by its nature – maintain its management) and is composed of Claudio Corbino as managing director, Giuseppe Scognamiglio, as Chairman, by Romano Prodi, former President of the Council of Ministers and of the European Commission, Giuliano Amato, former President of the Council of Ministers, Emma Bonino, former Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Joschka Fischer, former Vice Chancellor of the German Government, Enrico Giovannini, former Minister of Labor and Social Policy, Aleksander Kwasniewski, former President of Poland, Enrico Letta, former President of the Council of Ministers, Mario Nava, President-designate of Consob, Pier Carlo Padoan, former Minister of Economics and Finance, Anne-Marie Slaughter, former director of Political Planning for the Obama Government, Paola Severino, Rector of the LUISS, former Italian Minister of Justice, and Javier Solana, former High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union.
Such new initiative, also because of the extraordinary quality and experience of the personalities that strongly support it, will give new impetus to both traditional and new projects of Associazione Diplomatici & CWMUN, in the wake of the twenty-year action of the association that has always received words of appreciation and always will.
