More than a quarter of a century after its creation, the European Union is facing the biggest challenges yet to its existence. Born under the promise of open borders, open markets, and broad alliances, member states now face divisive questions over such issues as how best to respond to a mounting migration crisis and how to navigate the debt and currency questions posed by the 2008 financial crisis. Add to that terrorism, nationalism and a critical UK referendum, and the future health of the EU remains unclear. Join the IOP for the latest installment of its Diplomatic Encounters series as it welcomes His Excellency Gerard Araud, Ambassador of France to the United States, for his insights on the challenges facing the EU and the prospects for multilateral alliances. This event is co-sponsored by the France Chicago Center.
