Ivan Krastev in conversation with Guillermo Altares

What is happening with the European Union?

Cartagena 2023, 

With the rise of right-wing nationalist parties all over the continent, Brexit, the refugee emergency and the recent war in the Ukraine, the European Union is in crisis. At this event, the renowned intellectual and political commentator Ivan Krastev (Bulgaria) will reflect on the future of democracy in the European Union and the urgent challenges it faces. Ivan Krastev has analysed the European political union of the last 30 years in a number of book-length essays, including Is It Tomorrow Yet (2020), The Light That Failed: A Reckoning (2019) and After Europe (2017).
