BACKGROUND

While Brexit preoccupies public life in the UK, the EU27 perspective is more varied – attentive to the sizeable challenges facing Europe and the globe, including the economy, security, external migration and climate change, and of course different national politics in the member states. Although the EU27 (unlike the UK) are resolved to facing these challenges together within the Union, there is disagreement over how to move European integration forward. Should multi-speed Europe be intensified, with a committed core leading the way, for others to follow later? Should the EU refocus more intently on core business – namely, the internal market? Should power in fact be passed back to the national level to ensure the sustainability and legitimacy of the European project? Looking ahead, what shape will the post-Brexit EU take? Alongside the Council for European Studies International Conference in Glasgow, join us as we discuss the prospects for the Union of 27.
