This book is a collection of papers which discuss the impact of the war in Ukraine on Europe spanning a wide range of areas from geopolitical scenarios to economic prospects, sustainable energy to logistics, and the Eastern European dimension to EU-Africa relations. The authors of this book believe that we are living an unprecedented ‘European moment’, and that this moment can and should be seized upon to respond to present and future shocks. Both the papers collected in this volume and the manifesto presented point out the most promising directions of the leap forward that is required: more assertive and unified policies towards Eastern Europe, the Euro-Mediterranean region and Africa; a federalist drive towards more effective and fairer economic and social governance; the fight against polarisation and the strengthening of liberal democracy.
