The 21st century brought a whole new host of challenges to the world, and Europe was no exception. In this video you’ll learn about how an increasingly connected and complex world led to some pretty deep rifts in countries across the continent. We’ll learn about financial crises that rippled across the world. We’ll learn about wars and resultant migrations that sowed discord in many European nations. Increasing polarization and populism played out in movements like Brexit in the UK. While we don’t know what the future holds, an understanding of the roots of conflict can help create a roadmap for the future.
