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.

Sustainability developed as a full-fledged approach in the sense that, no longer an almost univocal vision that identified the issue in purely environmental terms, it broadened its scope to incorporate the economic and social spheres as well. In this sense, the development sustainability discourse grew increasingly close over the years to another theme of public interest, which is that of happiness.

Beyond the strengths and weaknesses of the ‘German model’, the German question in relation to Europe is the following: can it be reproduced in other European countries with drastically different economic and social structures? Twenty years of monetary integration have shown that the common currency regime brought about more discrepancy rather than convergence among European political economies.

Why are there tens of millions of unemployed? Why has Europe, and the eurozone in particular, not yet come out of the biggest crisis since the wars? Why is Italy in its third year of a recession? Is Europe something that helps solve these problems or does it contribute to making them worse? I think these are the kind of questions European citizens are asking themselves.

What are the prospects for the new commission? Its background history, the nomination, the hearings and the election show a stronger politicization and a leap in EU-related issues in the election campaign, a growing influence of parliament and increasing significance for the grand coalition in the European Parliament.

The Scottish referendum on 18 September 2014 produced an apparently clear result, with 45 per cent voting for independence and 55 per cent against, with a turnout of 87 per cent, the highest for any election in the United Kingdom in recent times. Yet the outcome has not settled the constitutional future of Scotland and its place in the United Kingdom, and further change is in prospect.

The process of European union, which is directly opposed to nationalist competition and has already set itself up against it and one day will be able to liberate Europe from it altogether, tends at the same time to liberate her from the whole psychology that clings to this nationalism and supports it and generates kindred manners, habits, and actions. And if this thing happens, or when it happens, the liberal ideal will be fully restored in men's minds and will resume its rule.

Leadership has become a crucial element in contemporary politics. The need for a centralised, all-encompassing leader springs from the current state of political and economic uncertainty. At the same time, the traditional political parties find themselves in a state of crisis, in terms ofhow they have operated since the end of the 19th and for the majority of the 20th century.

The only way to defend human rights is to guarantee their effective applicability, not to abstractly and demonstratively declaim just principles that however never confront reality. Human rights ideology's political correctness becomes dramatic and irresponsible when it meets the extremely fragile international balances in the East and the escalating tensions of the Middle East.

The greatest achievement of twentieth century constitutionalism was the laying down of a complex system of limits and constraints to the agency of public authorities in the post-Second World War constitutions, in the form of fundamental rights. Thanks to the rigid constitutions, explicitly drafted to avoid any repetition of the horrors of the fascist regimes and the world wars, an extraordinary and happy mix of the ancient and ongoing contrasts between reason and will was produced.
