The European Union is indispensable – why it must not fail (TruLies Blogpost by Gisela Müller-Brandeck-Bocquet)
Gisela Müller-Brandeck-Bocquet’s contribution to the TruLies blog is now available online.
Amidst increasingly prevalent Euroscepticism, Prof. Gisela Müller-Brandeck-Bocquet passionately advocates why the European project must neither be left to its enemies nor bystanders in order to save the European Union. It marks the beginning of a series of contributions on the homepage of the “TruLies – The Truth about Lies on Europe” project, which address the subjects of Euroscepticism and populism in Germany and Europe.
The project “TruLies – The Truth about Lies on Europe”, aided by the Stiftung Mercator and run by the Institute for European Politics (IEP) in cooperation with Das Progressive Zentrum, has two principal objectives. On the one hand, it strives to deconstruct Eurosceptic and populist prejudices, animosities, and false assertions, by means of social scientifically-grounded analysis. Thus, it aims to contribute to a rationalisation of the public discourse and debate in Germany (and beyond). On the other hand, “TruLies Europe” endeavours to publicly communicate its findings beyond the select circle of scholars to political actors, civil society, and the wider public.
