This interdisciplinary lecture series aims to shed light on the variety of European uses of the principle of solidarity. Solidarity as a social issue regained currency in European society in recent times as a result of longer-term structural and cultural processes related to individualisation and globalisation. With the present economic crisis and connected reforms of welfare states, solidarity is now back on top of the European agenda. Is there a future for the core idea of the European Social Model?
