Europe is at a crossroads. Populist far-right movements are challenging the very premise of an integrated European Union. Anti-immigration rhetoric is coalescing with anti-EU politics to challenge the liberal ideals of the European integrationist project. We chart the trajectory of that project from the ashes of World War II, in tandem with the story of the European far-right, exploring the shifts that have led to today’s critical juncture. We trace how far-right ideas have challenged and inflected mainstream politics, setting the political agenda on issues such as the EU and immigration. Combining a compelling narrative, in-depth interviews and informed discussion, The Big Picture sheds historical light and offers incisive analysis on the history and future of Europe.
