It has become clear to most that the major challenge Europe faces is not primarily Economic but one of shared or unshared values and sense of identity, national and European. It remains clear to some but not to most that the Union continues to suffer from a profound democracy deficit fueling the battle cry "Take Back Control." In his lecture Professor Weiler, will try and disentangle these various somber threads.
