The Hidden Vitality of Europe

  • Paul Scheffer, Professor of European Studies, Tilburg University

On the surface Europe seems to move from crisis to crisis without moving towards a stronger continent. Paul Scheffer will give us an insight below this surface. He takes us through some of the underlying phenomena that over decades and even centuries have created a European continent that is strong and vital. He is convinced that we don’t cherish these phenomena enough in these times of short-termism, populism and surviving crises.
