Should we refortify or reinvigorate Europe?

Keijzer, Niels / Thomas Henökl

published on Euractiv 5. Sep. 2016


The column was published in the run-up to the Bratislava summit and outlines the possible meaning for the future of the EU as well as the danger of de-prioritisation of long term objectives like Sustainable Development or the reconstruction of social cohesion in and between member states. The authors give a strong plea for ‘inclusive cooperation’ as a core aspect of the European success story since 1945, which, when contrasted with developments like the BREXIT and negotiations on refugee quotas, appear very relevant again.
