Slavoj Žižek and Srećko Horvat: What Does Europe Want?
The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies and the UCL European Institute host a debate with two irreverent philosophers on the European Union and its discontents. It follows the recent publication of their jointly authored book:
“Instead of a peace-project, the European Union is increasingly turning into a warzone: whether it be the expulsion of immigrants or riots in Paris and London, or European interventions to bring “more democracy” to Libya or Syria. But instead of leaving Europe to the enemies, Žižek and Horvat reflect on the fight for a different Idea of Europe.” (Istros Books, 2013)
