Europe between 1980-2010 saw a lot of turmoil that resulted from the “end” of the Cold War, but also was tied to the economic developments in Western Europe after 1945 and increasing industrialization.
Reading the textbook, the assigned primary sources and Rafaela Dancygier’s book chapter, what do you consider the main issues European countries faced during 1980-2010, and how did they impact, for example, on politics, society, economics, and the shared vision of a united Europe?
