The Future of Europe: Uniting Vision, Values and Citizens? This book explores many of the key issues now facing the EU: Is there a European identity? What does it mean to be a European citizen? What role can Christian values play in furthering European integration? Faced with massive global inequalities, how is the EU responding to the challenges of development, migration and asylum? Can Europe’s leaders provide an adequate response to the widespread sense that Brussels is distant from and indifferent to the needs and concerns of ordinary people?
The contributors to The Future of Europe: Uniting Vision, Values and Citizens?, who include Bertie Ahern TD, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, Peter Sutherland, David Begg and John Gormley TD, address these and related questions in seventeen papers which provide a range of perspectives – political, economic, historical, cultural and theological – on the EU and its future.
