Engin Isin gave a lecture at Fudan University (Shanghai, China) on 7 June 2013. This podcast is the audio recording of the talk. 

Engin exposes the difficulties to grasp what is Europe and European citizenship today. He highlights in particular the originality of European Citizenship (02:55) as well as its origins and contradictions (11:35). He then explores the contemporary crisis Europe is facing, such as the stuggles over financial capital, legitimacy and identity (42:02).  He concludes on the prospects of European citizenship, and notably the question of state sovereignty and the question of popular sovereignty (49:16).
