Mercy or murder? In Germany, the Bundestag is looking into a reform of the legislation on euthanasia, leading to a heated debate on the pros and cons of assisted suicide.

Is solidarity in Europe fading?

A Freiblickinstitut TTT debate

A house divided against itself? The nationalist right is on the up and negative headlines make the running, and yet, polls show that support for the EU is recovering and spontaneous displays of consensus in matters such as the Charlie Hebdo assassinations bear witness to our continued ability to empathise and to work together. How then to reconcile these seeming contradictions, is solidarity fading or are we merely witnessing a series of fraternal disputes? Listen to the recording and watch the video!
