Are we all 'Citizens of Nowhere'?
Niccolo Milanese ... This week we’re joined by Niccolo, one of two co-authors of an excellent new book, 'Citizens of Nowhere; How Europe can be saved from itself'. As the name suggests, the book 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'.
