2019 is a critical year for Europe. The rise of populist, nationalistic agendas has called into question the raison d´être of the European project and core European liberal values. With the new European Commission to be assembled this Autumn, now is the time to focus on a New Manifesto for Europe with fresh policy ideas. This open letter was written by the Global Future Council on Europe’s co-chairs, Miroslav Lajčák and Beatrice Weder di Mauro.
Miroslav Lajčák – Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic
