Neverland Europe - Neverland Europe deals with a paradox: the crisis of the European Union in terms of popular and electoral consensus, and the increasing number of States longing to adhere to its structure. Economic success has been the great hit of the Union, but it has done little to overcome the wide range of still existing nationalisms. The main feature distinguishing Europe from the Us and Japan, it Welfare State, has been seriously put in question by the high tide of neo-liberalism. The current economic crisis provides perhaps the last opportunity of shaping a European identity. This cannot be based on childish anti-americanism, nor on an abstract idea of European culture, but only on a new culture of mutual integration and human rights.
