Integration and desintegration
The Union is currently under severe pressure from a number of concurrent challenges and crises. Many of these - for example lack of shared values, economic instability and relations to new and former members - generate proposals for reform, which, in turn, lead integration into different directions. Today we see simultaneous forces of integration and disintegration. Britain exiting the Union accentuates this development, at the same time as it creates some kind of unity and deepening cooperation in certain areas for the remaining EU member states.
In this focus area, the European Program is currently analyzing the aspirations for independence in Scotland and Catalonia, as well as the ongoing processes for future integration.
