"Some believe Europe is more divided than ever. After years of austerity and migration, populists are on the rise in countries like Italy, framing politics as a battle between ordinary voters and a European ‘establishment’ some see as corrupt. But the continent is also split over how to move forward. Will the remaining nations of the European Union bind themselves together ever more closely, with tighter integration - economically, politically and even militarily? Or are there insurmountable fault lines that will continue to divide Europe?"
