Inhalt

The Eurozone crisis, Brexit, increased migration and, most recently, the coronavirus pandemic. Those are some of the crises that have challenged the European integration process in recent years. In light of these developments and the unprecedented farewell of one of its members, the EU is now required to reevaluate some fundamental questions, such as whether the ideals and core values the Union was founded on still hold true and whether having a dual European and national identity is feasible.

The seminar will first shed light on the different phases of European integration before discussing the main challenges the EU has been facing. This will be followed by a deeper examination of the influence national identities and historical memory have on the understanding of European values and principles. In the next step, participants will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge in a short simulation and experience how difficult it is to reach a consensus with all states on issues as diverse as migration, climate change (Green New Deal), and defense cooperation. This experience will foster a greater understanding of national differences with regard to European-wide issues.
