In collaboration with scholars in France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, and Sweden, CeBaM is conducting a three-year project, funded by Horizon 2020, to develop descriptive and normative understanding of the current “value crisis” related to the arrival of large number of asylum seekers in Europe starting in the summer of 2015, assess possible evolutions of European values, and consider Europe’s future in light of rights, norms, and values that it should aim at and that could contribute to overcoming the crisis.
