Guillaume Klossa on Europe's European Week

This has been a particularly European week for Europe. Wednesday marked the 68th anniversary of the very first moves towards a united Europe by Robert Schuman. On Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron was awarded the prestigious Charlemagne prize in Germany for his work on European integration. And this weekend, the biggest and most popular event in Europe had music fans the world over glued to their TV screens, with Lisbon hosting the Eurovision song contest.

Catherine Nicholson is joined by a man who knows more about these subjects than most – Guillaume Klossa worked as a director at Eurovision between 2014 and 2018, as well as running the EuropaNova think tank and other European initiatives.
