Marlene Wind has been advising the European Commision, both Von der Leyen (2020) and Josep Borrell (2021).
She has written several books and articles most recently, ‘The Tribalization of Europe – a defense of or liberal values’
on Polity Press, which is a strong call on European leaders to defend democracy much more strongly than what has been
the case up until now. In the book she warns against illiberalism and argues that Europe needs to be better at defending
and stand up for its own values if it wants to continue being democratic in a an increasingly non-democratic world.
