Maison de l’Europe de Paris, 35-37 rue des Francs-Bourgeois, 75004 Paris

Demos and Maison de l’Europe de Paris held a lively public debate to mark the launch of a major project examining how a rising culture of fear is sweeping Europe – fuelling populism, dividing societies, and threatening to destabilise democratic institutions.

The discussion explored the rise of far-right parties, the upcoming French and German elections, and how politicians can defend liberal democracy in the face of authoritarianism.
