500 years ago, a movement began that would revolutionize the world: the Reformation paved the way for radical societal changes. The questions at hand in this three-part lecture are: Who are today's reformers? What decrees are we facing that must be contradicted? Which institutions must be changed drastically?
In Part 1, politician and pioneer of the European Reformation, Ulrike Guérot, presents her idea for the founding of a European republic. She analyses the extent to which the pressure from right-wing populism's emergence in Europe can also present an opportunity for a re-establishment of Europe: Europe as a veritable European democracy. This is how Guérot wants to overcome European malaise, rethink Europe, and call on it to attack old-established institutions.
