Abstract :
[en] The past few years have been a bleak period for Europe, dominated by the effects of a multidimensional systemic crisis (economic, financial, social, environmental and geopolitical), growing unease among the general public and considerable turmoil among political elites. The aggressive rise of populism, the slow slide towards authoritarianism and the surge in nationalism have led to parochial tendencies, an erosion of solidarity and a growing ambivalence about the future of the shared European project. At the same time, in today’s globalised environment, the limits of the traditional economic model have become apparent as it grapples with the effects of “secular stagnation". A new paradigm is emerging, based on the importance of global public goods, of what is “common” to humanity, despite the divisions that seem to be driving it apart.
