Event description

Description

The European Union is facing the most serious crisis in its history and could be on a pathway to disintegration. The question of whether the EU can survive depends on its ability to withstand three decisive challenges - the widespread loss of faith in the Liberal orthodoxies on which the EU was built; the shifting geopolitical environment, in particular the apparent withdrawal of American sponsorship for European integration and attempts by Russia to undermine the EU’s internal unity; and the inevitability of another economic recession, which has the potential to overwhelm the Eurozone. All this has implications for the UK, which will remain umbilically bound to the European continent, as it always has been. To this end, the University of Cambridge’s Forum on Geopolitics will organise a one-day conference that assesses the future of the EU on the day the UK leaves the union and asks whether the apparently deepening crisis in Europe poses an unforeseen challenge to the UK’s security, prosperity and political system after its exit from the EU.
