“We live in a liquid world, where nothing is stabil.” - “Future wars will be about identity.” - “We need a European Union that is much stronger - and more democratic.” These are just a few of the statements of the Danish writer Carsten Jensen, who writes in his latest novel "Den første sten"/"The First Stone" about the senselessness of the war in Afghanistan. Carsten Jensen is the first awardee of the “EUF Europa Prize - donated by the University Council“, a prize honoring engaged Europeans. The interviewer is once again Kathrin Fischer, press spokeswoman of the EUF. This interview contains so many clever sayings that you can hardly count them. That is why it is interesting not only because of the many insights into the war in Afghanistan. Aspiring authors and fans of the author will also experience many new things. The interview was conducted mostly in English.
Dies ist die elfte Episode aus der Reihe "Gespräche über den Zustand der Welt" der Europa-Universität Flensburg (EUF).
