Can democratic institutions be transformed to serve exclusionary ends? Why has the ongoing refugee crisis transformed the politics of Central and Eastern European states—despite the fact that these countries host virtually no migrants? And what do demographic and generational changes mean for the liberal consensus that emerged in the wake of communism’s fall?
In this Political Salon Ivan Krastev will discuss with Christian Ultsch these and other questions raised in his new book After Europe (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017).
