Now that the UK is no longer a member of the EU, maybe it’s time to question the European identity.
Is the idea of ‘nation’ back on track, or are there new forms of social cohesion, a new sense of belonging and citizenship? Where do younger generations place their hopes? What do we mean when we say ‘we’ on a political level?
The talk is free and held online, 28 January, 6.05pm. You can watch here.
The panellists are: Stephen Clark (Director for Relations with Citizens in the Directorate-General for Communication, European Parliament), Ulrike Guérot (Head of the Department for European Policy and the Study of Democracy, Danube University Krems), Robert Tombs (author and historian, Cambridge University) and Louis Williams (author of An Optimist’s Brexit: A Millennial’s Vision).
Chaired by Matthew Parris (writer, broadcaster and former MP).
