Athens 2014 is not Sarajevo 1914

The centenary of World War I will see many commentators looking to draw parallels between the political ructions of today's Europe and the calamity that led to the Great War. It should not be used as justification for failing European integration.

This year may not turn out to be a historic year for Europe but one thing is certain: it will be a year full of historical commemorations. All in one, 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain, the 75th anniversary of the Second World War, the centenary of the First World War – and the 5th year of the euro crisis.
