#Raisina2021 Reclaiming Europe: Navigating the Political Compass
The EU has been buffeted by multiple crises that have sharpened existing debates and disagreements between member-states. The Union was built on ‘shared values’ – but what if the disagreement is about those ‘values’ themselves? Is the ‘Gospel According to Monnet’ still valid or are there new drivers that will shape the future of the EU? Is the economic division between north and south, and east and west overwhelming the centripetal forces? Or, can the centre hold on the strength of values? Are the grumblings and the rumblings around CAI a manifestation of a Europe divided in its approach? Are Europeans heading for Non-Alignment 2.0? Can they balance their American allies with China? Will the bureaucracy in Brussels be able to rebuff Pax Sinica?
