Europe 2030

by Daniel Benjamin

Europe 2030
In "Europe 2030", a group of distinguished authors look ahead and deliver their predictions on what Europe will look like twenty years from now. With great insight and drawing on deep reservoirs of experience, they illuminate the European Union's current strengths and weaknesses by imagining its future development. Among the contributors to this volume, former German foreign minister Joschka Fischer assesses Europe's ability to match his historic aspirations in "The Idea and Reality of Europe in 2030". 'His counterpart to the west, former French foreign minister Hubert Vedrine, examines Europe's most important foreign ties in Europe and the United States'. Charles Grant, director of the Center for European Reform, looks at how Europe plays on the world stage, deploying both hard and soft power, while bestselling author Daniel Benjamin of Brookings asks how Europe's large and fast-growing Muslim minority population will change states and societies. Other authors consider such issues as Europe's constitution, the fate of the European economic model, terrorism, and the boundaries of Europe.
