European Union: Past, Present & Future
Can the European Union survive Trump's presidency, a departing UK, a resurgent Russia and rising internal Euro-scepticism while continuing to cope with migration pressures, security threats and Euro woes? This workshop will seek to answer that question by studying the EU's history, institutions and operations, its successes and its failures. Hour 1 of workshop sessions will see a presentation on a contextual topic (e.g., the EU's key institutions), while Hour 2 will zero in an issue currently in the news. The final session will be a discussion by videoconference with a third-age learning group in the UK or Europe.
