CES Spring Lecture Series: Where Is Europe Heading? On New and Old Divides in Times of (Multiple) Crises
March 24, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Looking at the EU during the last months leaves observers rather perplexed. How is it possible that the ideas of integration and solidarity have lost their meaning so quickly? After Europe has more or less tackled the fiscal and budgetary crisis and avoided the Grexit, now national interests seem to prevail over burden sharing, not only in the refugee crisis. The fear of a Brexit, the rise of populist, xenophobic parties in Germany and France, illiberal governments in Poland and Hungary and more do not make the EU an attractive model of transnational government. The talk will take a deeper look at these crises, provide some explanations and outlooks to the future of the EU.
Free parking is available under the building after 5pm. We hope to see you there!
