Prague Workshop: Crisis in European Values?

What does it mean to be a “good” European ? The question recurs as Europe grapples with a series of simultaneous crises – refugees, multi-culturalism, uneven economic development, and bailing out neighbours at a time of low economic growth. On top of these comes the new politics of Post-Truth, of prejudice, and the rise of populism, nationalism and jingoism. Do we respond with walls OR Willkommenskultur ? These are tests for each of us – and for communities, regions, and nations. Our next three-day graduate workshop, planned for late February next year, will explore these important questions. The workshop will be held in Prague, hosted with our partners from Charles University. “If you are interested in participating in Post-Truth, Populism, and Prejudice: Europe’s Values in Crisis, please send an application as soon as you can (with a CV, a letter of application, a reference, and a suggestion for a possible paper) to the Europaeum office (see the Poster here.) Our keynote speaker will be Raymond Plant, formerly Master of St Catherine’s College, Oxford, who has written several books on political philosophy..
