The UK and Ireland in a Time of Crisis: The Future within and without Europe
1 December 2021, 12:30-14:00 (GMT), via Zoom
UACES and IACES are pleased to announce the third seminar in the series ‘The UK, Ireland and the EU in a time of Crisis’.
The Conference on the Future of Europe was launched on Europe Day, 9 May 2021. Its aim is to engage citizens across the EU in discussions about the shape and direction of the Union in coming years, across a range of policy areas. The conference takes place against a backdrop of recent and ongoing changes in European politics, including as represented by Brexit and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. In light of the conference, this seminar looks to explore the Future of Europe in broad terms, examining the conference as a process, the options available for citizen-led reform of the EU, and the Union's changing ethos and purpose. It also considers what the future looks like for the UK as a third country and how this status will influence it vis-à-vis future challenges/crises.
