Over A Coffee with Tanja Fajon, Slovenian MEP

Tanja Fajon meets Brian Maguire over a coffee to talk about Europe’s handling of the migration crisis and the toxic impact of populism on Europe’s values.

Voicing frustration that Europe’s centrist parties are not cutting through the populist-driven news cycles, she warns that Europe’s founding values are at risk in next year’s European Elections if a populist surge materialises. Arguing for a new communications approach ahead of the elections, Fajon expresses hope in the leadership of Spain’s Pedro Sanchez, saying she is encouraged by his clarity of leadership.

Tanja Fajon is a Slovenian MEP and the Vice-Chair of the S&D Group in the European Parliament.
