The evolution of the project “House of European History”
The “Red Thread”: First elements to characterize the contributions of the social movements and the Left to the process of European integration. What role did the social movements and the Left play in the twentieth century (antifascism, anticolonialism, 1968, resistance to neoliberalism), and more specifically in the process of European integration (1945-1992)? To what extent these contributions relect at the European level the international struggle between the great capitalist time and the new time of the Left?
