Financial crisis, economic crisis, refugee crisis: They are serving as centrifugal forces, polarising Europe and driving it apart. Recently, trust in the European Union and finding joint solutions for such central challenges has really suffered.
That makes it even more important to ask: What is keeping Europe together? And what progressive European policies can counter pessimism and legitimate worries with a positive alternative that is fit for the future?
With Europe Calling (#ec17fes), the Friedrich Ebert Foundation will address these questions and discuss them in Rome (21st March), Belgrad (9th May), Brussels (tbc), Budapest (tbc) and Berlin (tbc). Europe Calling is developing ideas for a social, fair and free Europe. Join the discussion! Follow the live stream and live bloging!
