Rethinking Europe 04

A series of lectures on Europe’s future - 04 Francis Wurtz

In 2016 and until this summer, we continue with our Rethinking Europe series. A series of lectures that, starting from the Greek crisis, aims to refocus the discussion on Europe’s future. Tackling the economic crisis in Greece reflects more comprehensive strategies for Europe. Thus, we bring together influential intellectuals from Europe and the USA to reflect on the consequences of the prevailing hegemonial politics and to rethink a social and political project for Europe.

Lecture 04. Francis Wurtz - Three pillars of a left refoundation of the european construction

Francis Wurtz was a member of the European Parliament from 1979 to 2009. He was elected with the French Communist Party (PCF), which belongs to the European parliamentary group GUE-NGL, and served as chairman from 1999 to 2009. From 2013 until today he is the president of the Institute for European Studies (University of Paris 8). He was a member of the national council (1979-2013) and head of the international sector (1992-1999) of the French Communist Party.
