Hertie School | Fragility and resilience: What can save Europe from itself?
What political, economic, and social future lies ahead if the European Union begins to disintegrate? With far-right, nationalist parties on the rise across the continent and the United Kingdom planning for Brexit, worries about the future of the EU have turned from abstract to very real. In his lecture, Bulgarian thinker and writer Ivan Krastev reflects on the problems the EU faces on many fronts, from the recent migration crisis to the spread of right-wing populism, and offers his ideas about how Europe can bolster its resilience – and what will happen if it does not.
The lecture by Ivan Krastev marks the official opening of the academic year to welcome all incoming and returning students at the Hertie School. It also serves as an intellectual impulse for the public policy community in Berlin. On this occasion, Hertie School President Helmut K. Anheier will award the first Dr. Michael Endres Prize, honouring outstanding academic personalities in the school’s fields of research.
