Title:Reflection on the State of the Union: From Crisis to Crisis? Or in a State of Perpetual Crisis?
Author(s):Larivé, Maxime H.A., Ph.D.; van Doren, Alexandra, ABD
Geographic Coverage:European Union
Abstract:Discussion about the future of the European Union (EU) is now taking place at 27. At the Bratislava Summit on September 16, the United Kingdom (UK) was not invited to participate considering the recent results of the referendum. The Bratislava roadmap identified a series of policy areas that the EU ought to address: boosting up unity, addressing the migration crisis and external borders, strengthening cooperation to enforce internal and external security, and providing to the economic and social development of the Union. The roadmap appears more as a wish list for European leaders than a strategic common set of policies taking the Union towards a certain future. This policy paper seeks to reflect on the issues facing the EU and its Member States. Several aspects have been identified as critical for the Union: security and defense, European economy/ies, the populist turn of European politics, and two critical challenges confronting the Union: climate change and Brexit.
