Europe's Last Chance: Why the European States Must Form a More Perfect Union

Europe is caught in its greatest crisis since the Second World War. The catalog of ills seems endless: an economic crisis through most of Europe's Mediterranean tier; terrorist attacks in Paris, Cologne, Brussels, and Nice; growing aggression from Russia in Ukraine and the Baltic states; and refugees escaping war-torn neighbors. Brexit is now a reality and others may follow.

How can Europe survive? What are the consequences of a divided Europe, on both sides of Atlantic? Could a United States of Europe, patterned after the American federal system, be a realistic solution?

Guy Verhofstadt was prime minister of Belgium from 1999 to 2008. He is the author of Europe's Last Chance and president of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe in the European Parliament.
