Beyond the Crisis

Europe is going through tough times. A world financial crisis in 2008 turned into an economic crisis. In consequence, several Euro-zone countries are experiencing severe problems regarding their state finances. As a result, institutional and conceptual weaknesses of the European Union are becoming obvious, while the readiness of Europeans for joint action, solidarity and sacrifices is being put to the test. The existing European institutions were not constructed for handling such a challenge. Nobody knows yet what will be the impact of the current events. As citizens, we try to understand and explore the developments, to make them transparent and to contribute to a analytical base for decisive action.
