EU Futures - Episode 53 - Robert Socha

In this episode, Robert Socha focused on the growing income gap in Europe and the United States, and the disconnection between elites and average citizens. Talking about his childhood in communist Poland, Socha expressed his love for the democratic, borderless European project and his pride in his home country advancing since the fall of the Iron Curtain. He admitted, "the EU is not a perfect place – it is often too bureaucratic, lacks vision, too distant to ordinary people,” but ended the conversation by explaining his belief that European identity is based upon a shared past, but that the continent's complicated history has taught Europeans the necessity of communication.
