ECIPE Webinar: The Strange Death of European Union Liberalism?

September 22 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Hans Kundnani
Time: 14:00

Join us for a conversation about Europe with Hans Kundnani

What ideas are now powering the European Union? For a long time, Europe and the European project confidently embodied the values of liberal universalism and cultural pluralism. That zeitgeist manifested itself in Europe’s self-image and its broad outlook on the world. Europe may not have been a superpower, but it was interested in the world and confident that its values were not a continental exclusive reserve. Now, however, many cherish a “Europe that protects” and it is increasingly common to hear a motivation for the EU that takes inspiration from the concepts of nationalism and the civilization state. Is Europe now becoming insular?
