The situation in Europe following the attacks in Paris, the new climate in relations between Russia and Turkey, the humanitarian crisis shaped by rising immigration and refugee flows, the closure of the borders, the involvement in the war in the Middle East are extremely important issues for a Europe that lost its ounce after six years of economic uncertainty and instability.

But are these only the challenges posed by the European Building? Is he now so stable that he can withstand shocks both inside and outside? How does European Integration continue, beyond the issues of relevance? How much do we understand what is happening in the Middle East? How informed are we about the processes and changes that are in progress and directly affect our lives?
