A year ago, the Hay Festival Segovia staged a debate among journalists from Spain, Italy, Portugal and the Netherlands regarding European management of the pandemic. The European Union ended up reaching a historical agreement to mobilise 750 billion Euros, but the negotiation process created strong tensions between North and South. Now Europe is facing the post-covid era with elections in Germany and France, and internal tensions in southern countries. This is the time to continue the debate, but with different actors. On this occasion we present Sandrine Morel, Spain correspondent for Le Monde; Reinhard Spiegelhauer, Chief Correspondent in Spain and Portugal of ARD (the German public radio and television corporation); and Enric Juliana, Assistant Editor of La Vanguardia in Madrid.
Moderated by Miquel Molina, also Assistant Editor of La Vanguardia, a newspaper that is celebrating its 140th year in 2021.
Arancha González Laya, Lucía Méndez, Simon Kuper, Ana Carbajosa and Daniel Dombey in conversation with Frederick Studemann
