Contemporary Challenges in the European Union (U3A)


Event Details


This U3A talk by Dr Jim Headley, University of Otago, examines some of the multi-faceted ‘crises’ facing the EU –  Brexit, refugees, Greece, authoritarian trends in Poland and Hungary, Ukraine and relations with Russia –  in order to assess the current state of the European integration project. Is it in terminal decline, or will these problems spur deeper integration and further enlargement?

James is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Politics, specialising in Russian foreign policy, the European Union, and nationalism and ethnic conflict.
