Présentation de l'éditeur

L Union européenne se construirait en dépassant les identités. Il faudrait les
faire rentrer, au chausse-pied si nécessaire, dans « plus d Europe ». Et cela
« dans l intérêt des peuples ». Cette imaginative and prescient gorgée de bonnes intentions a
dominé los angeles scène politique pendant des décennies. Depuis plus de vingt ans,
la development européenne se heurte pourtant à une résistance croissante,
passive ou lively. Une résistance qui s est exprimée notamment lors
des différents référendum, et qui a culminé en juin 2016 avec le Brexit,
symptôme d un mal qui n est pas que britannique et que certains n ont
pas voulu voir. Avec conceitedness, les élites ont taxé le vote britannique de
populiste, raciste, and so on. Pour sauver l Europe, ne faudrait-il pas pourtant que
celles-ci se décident à entendre los angeles colère qui gronde et qu elles acceptent de
se réconcilier enfin avec les peuples.
