    The end of Europe: Dictators, demagogues, and the coming dark age

    When: Monday, March 13, 2017, 2:00 — 3:05 p.m.

    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC


    On March 13, the Project on International Order and Strategy at Brookings will host James Kirchick of the Foreign Policy Initiative for the launch of his new book “The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age” (Yale University Press, 2017). Long heralded as the region of peace, stability, cooperation, democracy, and social harmony, modern Europe confronts a potential unraveling in the face of multiple crises across the continent. “The End of Europe” tours seven nations as case studies of the diverse set of challenges now straining the institutions and norms that have bound the region together and that threaten the U.S. vision for a Europe whole, free, and at peace.

    Kirchick will examine these themes in opening remarks, followed by a panel discussion on the future of the West, the trans-Atlantic partnership, and the constitutional democratic model in Europe. He will be joined in the discussion by Brookings Senior Fellows Constanze Stelzenmüller and Leon Wieseltier, moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow Robert Kagan. Thomas Wright, director of the Project on International Order and Strategy, will provide opening remarks. Following the discussion, panelists will take questions from the audience.
