SWF: Dead Europe?
From Brexit to the debt crisis to a backlash against migration, the European project – once a model of democracy and prosperity – is increasingly under strain. International relations expert William Clapton speaks with a panel of the Festival’s most astute political thinkers about the future of the continent in the face of an ascendant far-right, growing isolationism, discontent over austerity and deep-rooted economic challenges. Featuring journalist for the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz Anshel Pfeffer, Turkish writer Ece Temelkuran and editor of Australian Foreign Affairs Jonathan Pearlman.
