Political sentiment in Europe is fueled by excitement, shock, and relief. Populism and nationalism endanger the idea of the community . In the filter bubbles of social networks, uncertainties and distrust can thrive against 'others'. What does it do with European identity? How do citizens' initiatives try to bridge the political trenches?

Panel discussion with
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Merkel, Director of the 'Democracy and Democratization' Department, Berlin Social Science Center
Dr. Hansjörg Schmitt (), co-founder of the "Pulse of Europe", Frankfurt / Main

Presenter 
Julia Theres Held, today in Europe, ZDF, Berlin and Mainz
