The European Commission recently published a white paper on the future of Europe. In this interview, one of its Vice Presidents, Jyrki Katainen, outlines his vision of a European Union still committed to fundamental rights and values, despite the political instability caused by the Brexit vote. He also emphasises the importance of sharing the benefits of globalisation more equally and of improving the quality of teachers and especially teacher training, as a means of encouraging meritocracy and equality of opportunity for children from all social backgrounds.
