George Soros. The Crisis and the Future of Open Societies in Europe

Debate

Europe has been drifting from crisis to crisis and the deterioration of both the economic and the political situation does not seem close to an end. The solutions adopted by the European countries not only failed to stem market turbulences, but generate hostility and resentment both and the core and in the periphery. The threat is not only to the euro, but also the Union itself and the democracies that thrived thanks to European integration. According to George Soros, the European Union, which many hoped would embody and defend the values of open society in Europe and around the Globe,  no longer guarantees vibrant and tolerant democracies across the Old Continent.
