Abstract

Rosy depictions of the state of Europe today belie realities on the ground. The journey undertaken by this book shows a Europe more divided and unstable than ever, facing new challenges that threaten its existence, the survival of its open societies and its very soul. As traditional political forces have fallen short on addressing the concerns of their constituencies, untested, alternative political players have been riding the wave, bringing about increased fragmentation and uncertainty. Europe is worse off than it was five years ago and probably better off today than it will be five years from now.
