Europe is going through a hectic period of challenge and change. Economic and fiscal crises, threats to internal security, tectonic geo-political shifts along with Brexit and the questioning of Western values within the European Union are all exerting pressure on mainstream politics.

Once more, the future of democracy and the unity of Europe seem fraught with uncertainty. This entire background forces Europeans to engage in a fundamental debate about their future: What are the great questions about the future that Europeans should tackle together? Or not? Within which framework should they act? Collectively or individually? Is efficiency more important than unity? Does the pragmatic search for solutions breach European principles?

'eupinions' is gathering the opinions of Europeans on these central questions about the future of Europe and bringing them to bear in the public debate. We would like to give Europeans a representative voice in this discussion.
