M100SC participant Mark Leonard: A Europe with more space for genuine political disagreements

“In this new Europe, there will also need to be space for processing genuine political disagreements – rather than searching for consensus at all costs.  The way that the biggest parties in Europe have come together in the European Parliament and the European Council has sometimes created a sense that there is a “Europe Cartel” that is trying to sideline dissent.  This is one of the things that has helped populist parties rally against European elites.”
