The Political Visions section collects theoretical and philosophical insights into the idea of Social Europe. It offers different perspectives concerning the values that should shape the European Union, providing conceptual and normative tools to assess current European institutions and practices, and to foster European integration.
Effectively responding to the existing negative emotions (fear, resentment, etc.) directed towards European institutions and essential to the rise of the populist movements requires a new commitment on new premises, a renewed regime of equal respect, equal dignity and political equality.
The debate on the future of Europe should be a rallying cry for redeeming the promise of fraternite, which under conditions of economic globalisation can be realized only by politically catching up with it at the supranational level.
