Narratives for Europe

Are there emerging European Narratives – new visions – that can connect people across Europe? What’s Europe’s position in today’s global world? What will be its future role? These are the type of questions ECF is exploring and putting forward for debate here on this website.

We invite thinkers and activists from Europe and beyond 

  • to share their thoughts and observations…
  • to juxtapose, compare, dare, contemplate, open new perspectives, provide food for thought… 
  • to build Narratives for Europe. 

Writers Ece Temelkuran, Neel Mukherjee, David van Reybrouck, Rodaan Al Galidi, artists Bogomir Doringer, Ruud Gielens, Laila Soliman, change agent Kirsten van den Hul, journalist/ editor Claude Grunitzky share their visions and thoughts on four timely topics at the heart of European public debate and media.



We invite you to read the contributions of internationally renowned thinkers who are investigating and questioning European Narratives and their making in the present and the future, in the form of essays and publications. Contributors include: Wolfram Kaiser, Svetla Kazalarska, Sywert van Lienden, Jason Dittmer and many more…

Writers Abdelkader Benali and Jan Brokken open this series of very personal online exchanges on whatever European topics that strike them – one reflects, the other reacts and back and forth. Their fierce and heated exchange, sparked off by Jan with an outcry on the sadness of the discourse on Europe.
