Project:

Europe’s Futures

During my fellowship at the IWM I will work on the “Europe’s Future” project. It aims to develop concrete policy ideas on how to respond to some of the most urgent challenges Europe currently faces, from migration and asylum to the undermining of democratic institutions and social inequality.
