The European project was founded on a set of shared values – but have they stood the test of the time and how relevant are they in our increasingly tempestuous political environment? What do concepts like freedom, equality and democracy really mean in Europe today and how can we relate them to the stories unfolding around us?
The Seventh Value is a new six-episode series exploring what it means to be European today. Each episode explores a different value, diving into contemporary stories about Europe like migration, Brexit and the impact of mining pollution on local communities, and bringing together a diverse range of think tanks and research centres for a unique, open discussion. At the end of each episode, the participants are invited to add their own new value: the 'seventh value'.
Episode one: Human Dignity
Episode two: Freedom
Episode three: Democracy
Episode four: Equality
Episode five: Rule of Law
Episode six: Human Rights
