Historical amnesia is undermining European democracy

Rubio, Diego, (2017), «Historical amnesia is undermining European democracy», LSE EUROPP, 3 Μαΐου

Survey evidence suggests there is growing nostalgia toward former authoritarian regimes in a number of European countries. Diego Rubio writes that a degree of historical amnesia is now apparent in European societies, with those individuals who are too young to remember the authoritarian regimes of the past showing more openness toward the creation of authoritarian-like regimes today. He argues that strengthening historical education would help to protect European democracy against these trends.
