This is the report of the meeting of the 2012 European capital of Culture Selection Panel on 5 November 2008. The report is addressed to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Commission and the Committee of the Regions.
The final selection meeting began with a presentation of the city visits by the panel delegation that had made them. The four short-listed cities were then heard in succession, each interview comprising an oral presentation of the project lasting no longer than 30 minutes, followed by an hour-long discussion with the panel. The panel then deliberated its choice of city to be designated European Capital of Culture.
Following its deliberations, the panel submitted the shortlist of cities to the appropriate departments of the Ministry of Culture and communication. After a long discussion it was judged that the four cities that best met the objectives of the event and the criteria of “the European dimension” and “cities and citizens” were: Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse.
