Luke Cooper, academic and scholar of international relations and politics from the United Kingdom, he is also the co-host of the “Another Europe” podcast.
Luke was a Europe’s Futures Fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna in 2018-2019. One of the projects that he worked on during his tenure was a series on Europe after 1989.
He traveled Europe widely in happier pre- COVID19 times interviewing a great number of people thus amassing a substantive amount of documentary material.
The episodes of around 30 minutes apiece are made up of narrative script by Luke Cooper, interviews and archive material.
Intended for a broader intellectually engaged general public and undergraduate students looking at the history of Europe for the first time, it gives numerous certain insightful views of the making of the EU and the challenges Europe confronted during this period of three decades. Through events such as the post-communist transition, the violent collapse of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, or the creation of the single market in Maastricht, to the economic and financial crises of the late 2000s, Luke Cooper interviews actors who were involved as well as analysts studying these events. It is at moments a riveting listen.
