In short, the answer is, not much. But let’s elaborate!

As our team noted in the September issue, Brexit unleashed a large potential to reorganise Europe with, as it happens in transitions, huge opportunities but also great dangers. But citizens of several countries at the heart of Europe find themselves stuck in unnecessary and dysfunctional public debates: unnecessary because national level decisions are insignificant, and dysfunctional because the proposals of the various camps have a very low potential for practical application. Marine Le Pen will not get France out of Europe, nor foreigners out of France. Others will not succeed in straightening out the economy and living standards that depend entirely on the European and global mechanisms of political and economic cooperation – subjects on which they have nothing to say, explain or offer.
