About EuVisions:

EuVisions is an observatory aimed at offering up-to-date information and analyses on crucial issues pertaining to the European Social Union (ESU) and the development of the European integration process. It was established as part of the ERC-funded REScEU project (Reconciling Economic and Social Europe: Values, Ideas and Politics) directed by Maurizio Ferrera, based at the University of Milan and the Centro di Ricerca e Documentazione “Luigi Einaudi” in Turin.

Combining academic rigour, the use of infographics and an eye on current events makes EuVisions a unique experiment, which aims not only to speak to different audiences and to bridge the gap between scholars and laypeople interested in this subject.
