“The image that Europe is currently presenting could hardly be more contradictory: isolationism, populism, scepticism about EU institutions are all mixed in with a newly blossoming euphoria about the European idea. Does Europe need a reset?
At the moment it mainly needs a direction. In the face of democratic crises, climate change, structural change and the hate that exists in society, the people of Europe need new ways of solving pressing problems.
Can culture help to win back the trust of Europe’s citizens and create a European public sphere? Can it generate more unity and defend Europe’s existential values of human rights, multilateralism, freedom of the press and opinion?
The contributors to this Culture Report look for answers to these questions.”
