Where lays the separation of society in Europe? Is it highly educated versus lowly educated, ’People’ versus ‘Elite’, young against old, mainstream against populism, religious versus secular?

With our guest from the Netherlands we will take a look at the development in his home country and in Europe: In the Dutch Parliamentary elections in March, the right-wing populist party of Geert Wilders became the second-strongest force, the previous government parties lost significantly in their approval. The vote on Association Agreements between the European Union and Ukraine also revealed an atmosphere, in which established parties and civil society actors no longer reach large parts of society.

Where are conflict lines within society, and how can they be countered? What lessons can be drawn from the Netherlands for Europe? We would like to discuss these and other questions with you and Dr. René Cuperus.
