Christian Democrat Internationalism
Its action in Europe and worldwide from post-World War II until the ‘90s
International research project - 2011-2013

Internationalism research was dedicated to the latest period: from the Seventies until nowadays. In these years, the previous experience of the single national parties merges into the EPP as a transnational party. The conference 2013 is focused on this aspect and on EPP as an international party with its categories and its regional experiences.
