Royal Monastery Of Yuste, 14-16 July 2014

The main aim of the course is to analyze some of the major challenges confronting the European Union today. The conditions affecting the process of European integration following the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty have been influenced by the protracted financial and economic crisis the leading global economies still find themselves in. Apart from purely internal factors, the EU´s position in the world has been reshaped by the convergence of new emerging actors on the international scene and by the tensions besetting the continent.
