Briefing: Ivan Krastev on the legacy of 1989


Hello, and welcome to VoxEurop newsletter.

Thirty years ago, Europeans were experiencing a magical season, as the Berlin Wall collapsed almost all of a sudden, and in a relatively pacific way: everything seemed possible in a continent that was finally recomposing itself, after having been divided for half a century. Three decades later, what remains of this dream? In a long interview with our partners from Eurozine, political scientist Ivan Krastev, who has been following the movements that are stirring Central and Eastern Europe, looks in detail at the legacy of 1989.

While this legacy may seem rather heavy today, Italian writer Roberto Saviano and French essayist Guillaume Klossa invite Europeans to build together a positive vision of their common future.
