EU’s future patterns of differentiation, dominance and democracy

12 aprile 2019 ore 14:00                      

As a part of the launch of the Research Horizon 2020 Project EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D) this debate will outline Europe’s challenges and discuss possible ways for dealing with them.The European Union has gone through a very tumultuous decade, having had to grapple with the Eurozone crisis, the refugee crisis and a less predictable and rule-bound global context. The EU that emerged from the crises has become more differentiated and faces strong centrifugal pressures not only from Brexit but from a pan-European ‘new’ nationalist or ethnic nationalism that is deeply Eurosceptic. Historically differentiated integration has been an important mechanism for handling Europe’s diversity. Today it is not clear if differentiation is part of the problem or part of the solution.
