A few years ago, British historian Tony Judt identified two main phases in the evolution of European memory after the Second World War: the first took shape in 1945, the second after 1989. This picture entirely eclipses an aspect which is of great historical significance: the presence everywhere in Europe of collaborationist forces that actively supported Nazism, and the fact that serious war crimes were committed by all parties involved in the conflict, including the winners.

The line of confrontation that seems to be emerging with greater prominence at an international scale is rather that between the liberal-democratic tradition of the West and extra-European cultural traditions that have re-established their guiding role and proudly lay claim to their difference. The world is in flux, a vortex of change, and it is hard to identify the axis around which this turbulence will subside and find a new balance.

Beyond the European Union’s huge successes, the fall of the Berlin Wall is the story of a lost opportunity. This fall should have been the impetus for the indispensable unification of the European continent. Yet, not only has this not been the case, the fall has actually marked an increase over the years of a much deeper rupture between democratic Europe and the Russian Federation. In the first place, practically nobody in the world believed until the very day of the fall of the Wall that Perestroika was really going to open up something new.
The possibility of a crisis of European democracy truly does exist then, but whether it comes about or not is dependent upon the way in which the current historical constellation of crises within European democracy play out. The best way to guard against it in the meantime is to provoke a series of democratic confrontations around such specific issues as inequality, migrants’ rights, budget reform, and the need for economic and social rights to be prioritised alongside political rights.
