ACHIEVEMENTS AND LIMITATIONS OF 60 YEARS OF EUROPEAN INTEGRATION
From the 18th to the 20th of July 2018, at the Royal Monastery of Yuste
The course attempts to analyse the achievements as well as the issues, crises and challenges constantly faced by the process of European construction and integration since its start-up 60 years ago, when the Rome Treaty was signed, and which set the limits to this project of unity. Our aim is thus to awake critical and constructive awareness in those students who approach the analysis of this subject matter.
This summer course seeks to take stock of the European integration process which started towards the end of World War II and has not yet ended. Since the economic crisis suffered in 2007, European institutions have experienced severe stress and have been submitted to a critical context where nationalist passion and radicalism of all sort has emerged, thus endangering the European construction project. During the course, we will go through what has been constructed and we will point out the challenges and limitations that the 21st century brings forward in terms of a united Europe.
