8th Academy Discussion Europe: From the Economic Union to a Republic?
Economic and social differences between the EU states have not diminished with the euro. The political and social cohesion of the Union is being tested. How radically must we change our views to accomplish the goal of transnational European integration? Akademie president Jeanine Meerapfel discusses these issues with the Italian ambassador Pietro Benassi, the cultural theorist Christina von Braun, the Senator for Culture and Europe Klaus Lederer and the writer Robert Menasse.
