A Europe in change

Europe is facing a crossroads in 2019, including European Parliament elections and the formal implementation of Brexit.

But as Europeans, do we choose  to move towards a stronger and greater community, or will more countries follow in Britain's path and leave the European project for a more nationalistic and populist agenda? Perhaps the future consists of a united Europe, though with countries that are integrated at different rates and cooperate at various levels?

In order to contribute with scientific facts and improve the image of the developments, Umeå University is placing a special focus on the situation in Europe and how the future looks for the EU and its citizens.
