Project description
Why does Europe define itself as an area of freedom, security and justice? What is the real nature of the values expressed by European integration? This project seeks to offer an alternative vision of Europe as an area of freedom, security and justice - one that distances itself from the classic liberal configuration of Europe as protector of human rights and the rule of law. The series of crisis of the past decades, from the eurozone crisis to the migration crisis, reveals how contradictory and ambiguous the ideals of European integration can be. This project aims to expose these contradictions and challenge the traditional idea of law as the supreme tool of integration.
