Café Culture, Europe and Brexit

From the witty title, to the engaging writing style and intelligent analogies, this article offers an exciting and refreshing viewpoint on the overexploited topic of Brexit. Published prior to the referendum vote, it focuses on an important aspect that remained largely neglected during the Brexit campaign discussions – the EU is a project for social and cultural exchange, not simply a trade union.

I was quite disappointed that the overall Brexit rhetoric was limited to economic issues and failed to articulate the cultural, ideological and social implications of the vote. That is why I really enjoyed ArchDaily’s ‘It’s All in a Cup of Coffee (or, Indeed, Tea): Does Café Culture Embody the Idea of Europe?’ article by James Taylor-Foster (who, by the way, is also a MSA graduate).
