Module 2 - LW6638 Brexit and the Future of Europe

The second module, delivered in the second semester, addresses ongoing developments in the European Union. The European Union is undergoing a period of change and reflection. It has experienced what some have termed a ‘polycrisis’ in recent years. The eurozone crisis, the migration crisis, terrorism, Brexit and now the COVID-19 crisis have all challenged the institutions and structures of the Union, its capacity to deliver and ultimately its political identity. Pervading this is the ongoing sense of a democratic deficit. This module will address all of these challenges to the Union, looking at the impact of these crisis on and possible reforms to the Union, inlcuding the growing interest in Differentiated Integration.
