The European Union (EU) is facing developments severely affecting its internal cohesion, solidarity and fundament of shared values. To name only a few: Societies across the bloc are deeply divided about migration and how to deal with migrants. Right-wing nationalist forces mobilize against the EU and its values, while the EU legal order is questioned as governments openly challenge the primacy of EU law.

The panel discussion will explore these and other issues to address the challenge to the EU’s fundaments and unity. It will also ask for sources of robust response and resilience.
