Lecture | Series »Europe after the Russian invasion of Ukraine«
Nathalie Tocci (Istituto Affari Internazionali, Rome)
»Europe from an age of idealism to an age of war«
After decades of progressive integration and expansion, from the single market and monetary union to the successive enlargements to southern, northern and eastern Europe, the European project tipped into a prolonged existential crisis. From the rejection of the Constitutional Treaty, to the sovereign debt crisis, the migration crisis, and Brexit, the European Union teetered on the brink for too long. As it did, Europe lost its narrative: it no longer had a compelling story to tell. First with the pandemic and then with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EU found it’s raison d’être once again. Having left the age of idealism and the ensuing age of pragmatism, the EU is learning to navigate the age of war.
