Event Description

In the wake of several crises now afflicting the continent, the dream of a United States of Europe is unraveling. Voters are abandoning traditional ways of governing in favor of authoritarian, populist, and nationalist alternatives. Europe is struggling to cope with an influx of nearly 2 million refugees, Britain has voted to leave the European Union after 43 years, and the single Euro currency threatens to collapse.

What consequences do these events have for Europe, the United States, and the rest of the world? Does the changing nature of our relationships with longtime allies threaten global security?

William Drozdiak is a former editor and chief European correspondent of The Washington Post.  He has also served as founding executive director of the Transatlantic Center in Brussels and, for 10 years, was president of the American Council on Germany. Currently Drozdiak is a non-resident senior fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution.

Veteran journalist Linda Greenhouse has strong views on these topics. Find out more.

Tackling Inequality in the United States, with "Born on Third Base" Chuck Collins

Chuck Collins grew up in a wealthy family and gave away his fortune at the age of 26, yet he realizes that he still has advantages accrued over generations. The current level of inequality is bad for society as a whole, he declares. "It is not in anyone's interest to keep moving toward a sort of economic and racial apartheid." But it doesn't have to be this way. It can be reversed.
