European Solidarity – What Should and Can It Mean?

European Solidarity – What Should and Can It Mean?

During the last decade Europe has experienced a financial and a migration crisis, as well as a pandemic, all of these showing the importance of European solidarity.

More solidarity in the European Union is also sought by many. However, the question remains as to what solidarity should and can mean in terms of policies when different EU members give different answers to the question on how countries should act in order to show solidarity.

This seminar is part of the research programme Europe’s Future, whose publication, European Solidarity in Action and the Future of Europe, Views from the Capitals, will be published by Springer in December. The book contains chapters written by authors in all EU and some other European countries. 

In this seminar three distinguished panelists gave give their views on the various aspects of European solidarity:

Michael Kaeding, Professor for European Integration and European Union Politics, Institute of Political Science, University of Duisburg-Essen and Jean Monnet Professor ad personam

Katarina Areskoug Mascarenhas, Director at Kreab, Stockholm, Chairman of the board at the Centre for European Studies, Lund University and Member of the board at the Institute for Security and Development, Stockholm
