Europe and the Spectre of Post-Growth Society

With this collection of essays, based on the debates at the Council of Europe Schools of Political Studies from 2012 to 2013, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski, Director of Policy Planning of the Council of Europe (2010-2014), analyses major societal concerns facing Europe and explores the relevance of the European project and its capacity to address the threats to democracy. What role can the Council of Europe play in providing creative solutions to the challenges? How can we embody the idea that Europe is bigger than the European Union and that the European agenda is richer and deeper than the economy and politics? To buy the book, please go to the Council of Europe’s Online Bookshop (www.book.coe.int).
