The period in which we are now living is key for Europe. Although the Union has kept its promises of peace and freedom and has mainly achieved its goals towards economic and social progress by eliminating the barriers between its States, the future is full of uncertainty. In the face of rising populism, climate change and the loss of trust in the institutions, simply maintaining the acquis is no longer enough to unite the peoples of Europe.
Where some see a crisis, the authors would like to see an opportunity - one in which we might rethink the European Union so that it can face the challenges of this century head on.
