HOW THE EUROPEAN PROJECT CAN BE SAVED: THE COSMOPOLITAN OUTLOOK

Thursday, November 13, 15–17h
Cultural Centre of Belgrade, Gallery Artget

Europe is not a fixed condition, not a territorial unit, not a state, not a nation. In fact, there is no ‘Europe’, there is Europeanization, a process of on-going transformation, or metamorphosis: dissolving an old order and creating a new one – in a very specific sense: Europeanization is about politics of side-effects. The EU was founded not on the logic of war, as were states. It is a new kind of polity constructed in reaction to the risk of war and now, in reaction to the risk of economic collapse.
