Proceedings of the 2011 FORUM MARE NOSTRUM VI – Turku, Finland

The 2011 Forum Mare Nostrum was organised by the European Writers’ Council with the sponsorship and coordination of the Association of Finnish Non-Fiction Writers, the collaboration of the Society of Swedish Authors in Finland, and the Union of Finnish Writers, and the support of the City of Turku, the European Capital of Culture 2011.
The Mare Nostrum series was created by the European Writers’ Council as a European forum for the dialogue between cultures in the Mediterranean area and the rest of Europe. The Forum Mare Nostrum VI was held in Turku, the European Capital of Culture 2011, to expand the dialogue to the Nordic Sea region. The previous events were held in Delphi (1999), Barcelona (2001), Cyprus (2004), Trieste (2007), and Marseille (2009). The Forum Mare Nostrum VII will be held in Malta in 2013.
