Between Dream and Tragedy: Europe’s story after 1989

Nationalism is back. But did it ever really go away? And what does this attack on the very idea of international unity tell us about Europe’s past and future? In the fifth episode of the series, Luke Cooper returns to the tragedy of the Yugoslavian wars in the 1990s to find lessons for today. He warns the new authoritarianism is a profound challenge to the dream of Europe.
