Prof. Zdzisław Krasnodębski MEP

The Future of Europe

Security, demography, energy—and more

Prof. Krasnodebski left a career as a distinguished sociologist at Bonn University to serve in the European Parliament, where he now sits on the working group on the so-called “Conference on the Future of Europe”. He recently urged at a plenary meeting in Strasbourg to “make the EU anew”, which gives you a sense of the looming challenge facing the Union, a choice between digging in on a desperate plan to replace national sovereignty with an opaque supranational bureaucracy and trusting nation-states to cooperate on the basis of mutual interests. Watch Prof. Krasnodebski discuss with Jorge González-Gallarza his views on everything from the future of Europe, defense cooperation, energy security and demographic decline.
