Europe for the Many is an event series aiming to create ‘moments of dialogue in times of crisis’. These discussions are taking place at a time of great urgency for the future of progressive forces on the continent. Peace and democracy in Europe are today under huge challenge by the rise of the far right. With some exceptions progressive forces have not been the ‘go-to pole’ of the political system blown apart by the fallout from the global financial crisis.
Today we are paying the price for the failure of previous reform efforts; of not being bold and visionary enough. This can’t go on. Europe needs a new agenda.
To aid in these efforts Europe for the Many will provide an opportunity for civil society movements and politicians to enter into dialogue and discussion on what our next steps will be. How do we go beyond the dichotomy of status quo Europe versus no Europe? What transformative possibilities are opening up? And how can the growing threat from far right nationalist forces be effectively challenged?
We will bring together a range of speakers – and you – to answer these questions.
