Conditions of European Solidarity Vol. I: What Holds Europe Together?

K. Michalski: Conditions of European Solidarity | Vol. I:

The enlarged European Union faces the greatest challenge in its history. It seems that the older forces that animated European integration are no longer able to provide political cohesion. What can hold Europe together in the future?
Does Europe’s common culture offer a new source of energy? What moral concepts, what traditions, what goals are capable of bringing together the Union’s inhabitants in a common democratic polity?
Renowned international scholars, intellectuals and politicians discuss the question of how a truly European solidarity can be established in a Union full of diversities and inequalities.
