From the archive of the Weekly Filet: Some of the best on Europe

The British are going to miss Europe

The Correspondent

Written before the election, no less applicable right after. An ode to Europe and an explanation why people struggle to feel European. «What makes Europe truly European are all those things that you don’t see when they’re all around and only notice when they’re not.»

Europe’s new borders

Photographic Museum of Humanity

Powerful images from Europe’s borders, captured with drones. In the photographer’s own words: «My project, Europe’s New Borders, offers a sense of scale on the dehumanized border crisis unfolding in Europe throughout the last two years. It covers most of the borders of the European Union, the transformation of these, and the consequences, big and small, concrete and abstract, for the refugees and migrants.»
