Part of YUFE’s goal entails the stimulation of a stronger European identity. 

However, we need to pose the question: what is an European identity? And how has this sense of identity evolved?
In order to do this, it is necessary to revisit the processes of European colonisation and its lingering effects. We see these effects most visibly in the structures and curricula of European universities which have been created, informed and primarily dominated by white, heterosexual, able-bodied Western perspectives. Dismantling these structures demands an extensive and long-term process. We wish to begin by posing questions such as: What is knowledge and how should it be taught? And from whose perspective?
We propose to take the first steps in this direction by organising a student round table, thus creating a place for exchange and sharing of knowledge.
