Counter Revolution: liberal Europe in retreat

Liberal ideas are under attack across Europe.

In this lecture, Jan Zielonka explores the sources of this counter-revolution to the liberal establishment and asks if Europeans can feel secure again?

Ralf Dahrendorf wrote a famous book on the liberal revolution after the fall of the Berlin Wall and Zielonka, a Ralf Dahrendorf Fellow at Oxford, addresses his ideas as a modern response to equally turbulent times.
