Brussels ConneXion 3/3

Brussels ConneXion 3/3

Brussels: the ‘capital of Europe’ and a place called ‘home’ – to varying degrees – for individuals and families from across Europe and beyond.

Why do these expats choose to settle in Brussels and how do they establish themselves here? Why is it easier for some and more complicated for others? What links do expats have with their compatriots? And how do they interact with the ‘locals’ (what is a ‘local’ anyway?) Do they get the chance to really connect?

Brussels ConneXion focuses on so-called ‘expats’, skilled migrants, mostly Europeans, without, perhaps (who knows?), any long-term plans to settle down in the city. The European institutions draw a huge number of expats to Brussels. They come from all countries of the Union. The city is teeming with diplomats, lobbyists, journalists, and other professionals active around the institutions.

In the third program, Sheindi Edelkopf a Jewish Italian woman as she describes herself, librarian of the European Jewish Library in Brussels meets Rachida Aziz, a fashion designer. Over a visit in both Synagogue and Rachida's clothing shop, they talk about their Faith and what it takes to be a Modern Woman.
