The political crisis of European integration has brought to the surface nationalist ideas and attitudes that were commonly regarded as belonging to the past.

Europe is in danger of regressing as a reinvigorated radical right gains ground.

The yearbook 2017 of transform! europe will also consider how a Trump Presidency may impact on Europe.
