Description - What Does Europe Want? by Prof. Slavoj Zizek

Despite the fact that the European Union faces the biggest crisis since its foundation, on July 1st, 2013, a new state joined the club. For the foreseeable future, Croatia will probably be the last to join; at the same time creating a barrier between the once connected states of the Balkans. Paraphrasing Freud's famous question - 'What does a woman want?' - one of the greatest European philosophers of our day, Slavoj iek, joins forces with the young Croatian philosopher, Srecko Horvat, to examine the burning question 'What does Europe want?'. Instead of a peace-project, the European Union is increasingly turning into a warzone: whether it be the expulsion of immigrants or riots in Paris and London, or European interventions to bring "more democracy" to Libya or Syria. Instead of leaving Europe to the enemies, iek and Horvat reflect on the fight for a different Idea of Europe; one that embraces all its peoples equally.
