EU at the Crossroads: Populist Propaganda vs. Democratic Solutions
With this thematic reflection paper, the IED intends to spark debate and help to fight populism, disinformation as well as Euroscepticism across the EU.
The European project faces the greatest crisis in its 60-years long history. Political, social and economic challenges such as populism, demographic changes, migration, cyber-attacks, global warning, terrorism, health systems sustainability, disinformation and false news, unemployment and popularity of Eurosceptic parties represent a serious threat to the very existence and future of the European Union. Therefore, the current challenges have to be addressed in a way to show an added value of a common and united Europe.
