The idealized vision of a united Europe is coming under assault. Migrants and refugees challenge Europe’s “open-door” policy; ethnic minorities demand equality while others seek independence; and ultra-nationalist groups and populist parties are bursting into the political mainstream.
This distinctive semester, launched in 2017, in association with Global Knowledge, LLC, equips students with a unique lens to closely examine the myriad challenges facing the vision of a united Europe. Can it remain a borderless Union, or rather, should new veiled borders be erected to keep out foreigners who do not share Europe’s religious and racial identities? How can the European Union maintain its democratic and pluralistic ethos in light of these challenges?
