Is the European Union (EU) in a state of crisis? Over recent years, a series of systemic and spontaneous challenges including Brexit, the rise of Euroscepticism and the Eurozone and refugee crises have manifested in landmark moments for European integration.

First published as a special issue of Global Discourse, this edited collection investigates whether these crises are isolated phenomena or symptoms of a deeper malaise across the EU. Experts from across disciplines analyse and rethink the forces which pull Europeans together, as well as those which push them apart.

Russell Foster is Lecturer in British and European Politics Education at King’s College London.

Jan Grzymski is an Associate Researcher in the Centre of Migration Research at the University of Warsaw.
