Crises in Contemporary European Politics
While in the UK and Europe Brexit is at the forefront of the news and 'Brexhaustion' is rife, we want to help our readers take a broader view to consider the multiple challenges and crises facing Europe, including the rise of nationalism, migration, economic disparity and populist governments.
This is about remembering that Brexit is only one part of a larger and interconnected series of crises that are playing out across the continent.
This collection of journal articles, which is free to read until 31 March 2019, includes an issue of Global Discourse which takes a transdisciplinary approach to the crisis of European integration and identity, exploring the conceptual, political and physical Limits of 'EUrope'.
It includes a recent special issue of the European Journal of Politics and Gender which interrogates the gender, sexuality and intersectionality crises occurring in contemporary European politics, as well as a themed collection of articles from Policy & Politics that help make sense of the crises in governance, policy and politics at the continental, national and local levels that have been brewing in Europe for some time.
