Episode 4: Are we all ‘Citizens of Nowhere’?
This week we’re joined by Niccolo Milanese, one of two co-authors of an excellent new book, ‘Citizens of Nowhere; How Europe can be saved from itself’2nd July 2018
As the name suggests, Citizens of Nowhere challenges Theresa May’s infamous phrase – that if you are a citizen of the world, then you’re a citizen of nowhere – and offers a radical new agenda for political change. The book isn’t just a new political vision but is also in part a history of the authors’ own, decade-long attempt to catalyse social change with the establishment of European Alternatives, a transeuropean NGO. We ask Niccolo for his thoughts on how the rise of the far right can be resisted, the place of Eastern Europe in the European story, and the history of ‘Europe from below’.
