Nation and State Vs. Europe: When the Sum of the Parts Is Larger Than the Whole
Lecture | October 16 | 12-1 p.m. | 201 Moses Hall
Josef Joffe, Regents Lecturer, Institute of Governmental Studies
Brexit, the endless crisis of the euro and the suspension of Schengenland are the symptoms of renationalization. So is the rise of anti-European populism - even in Germany, the traditional engine of integration. As always in its 65-years history, the EU will muddle through. But for all of its resilience, it cannot not transcend the nation-state and evolve into an e pluribus unum. This lecture seeks to explain why ever closer union will not lead to a United States of Europe.
