Our adventure comes to an end for the moment but we hope Eutopia’s journey will resume soon. All our articles will still be available for reading. Thank you for having supported Eutopia until now.

In Europe consensus has broken down and conflicting visions of society have returned. Traditional centre-left and centre-right parties are forced today to join forces through grand-coalitions or republican pacts in order to ensure governability or keep insurgent parties at bay. A radicalism of discourse has returned, denouncing the status quo as a sham and a scandal. We should welcome this change.

The prospects for a European consensus are not good at the moment. The sudden spike in the number of refugees has prompted national governments to act in a provisional and hectic manner, without broader European co-ordination.

The European Union has proven itself to be particularly weak is its poor ability to open up a reflection on the causes of the mass exoduses, and it seems incapable of elaborating its own policies on Syria, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Libya – which today remains a crucial migration intersection ruled by anarchy after the war that led to the deposition of Qaddafi.

Migrants make headlines and images. These in turn promote the idea that they are somehow to blame for their situation, fitting one of two versions of the same story: migrants either as villains, or as victims of human traffickers.

The search for the correct balance between providing adequate support to those in need and avoiding moral hazard represents the most complex point of the European political debate.

A reading of the Greek crisis grounded in an acceptance of the dichotomy between austerity and growth ignores the real problems of Greece and the long-term objectives upon which the process of European integration is founded, namely the effort to generate acceptable levels of economic convergence through the improvement of member countries’ institutions.

The Greek case demonstrates that once economic conditions deteriorate for too long, there follows the rise of political dynamics that are antagonistic to European cooperation and that have destabilising and expensive consequences for both the country concerned and its partners.

Any kind of stubborn persistence is suspicious and holds some sort of deeper meaning. German doggedness in favor of a Grexit is a case in point and must be mulled over. Indeed, we cannot content ourselves just by thinking that Wolfgang Schäuble and Sigmar Gabriel have simply lost their minds.

Who is the subject of sovereignty in the Eurozone? From the standpoint of democratic theory, the answer can only be: the demos of the Eurozone. However, since this demos has not yet been (sufficiently) established in Europe, we have to ask ourselves: who really makes the important decisions in the Eurozone?

Generation E is a pan-European project that aims to collect data to help us understand the phenomenon of the migration of young people from Southern Europe who leave, at least temporarily, their countries. It is the description of a generation, or at least of a part of it, beyond the false myths and clichés that label these young women and men, beyond the ‘lost youth’ stereotype.
