Abstract: The historical promises of European integration, peace, prosperity and a powerful voice in a globalized world seem to have lost their appeal. War in the east, economic and social meltdown in the south, millions of refugees, xenophobia and nationalism have a led to Brexit, Le Pen and the AfD, but have the elections in The Netherlands, France and Germany turned the tide? Is Europe finding its way back to the idealistic visions of its founding fathers?
