Towards a New Europe
"Only a few days ago, in Finland, and a few months ago, in France, over 20% of those countries’ citizens cast their votes for extremist and populist movements which are seeking to retreat behind their national borders. In other words, they are seeking to bring an end to the European project. And in addition to those voters, many others harbour doubts and worries, or are angry. On top of that, many young people are just indifferent. It is with those fears and concerns in mind that I decided to write this speech". Speech by Commissioner Barnier at the Humboldt University, Berlin.
