The EU: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

A lecture by Joseph Jupille, Ph. D., Associate Professor of Political Science
University of Colorado, Boulder
Co-Director of the Tocqueville Initiative

At root, the British vote to leave the EU in the “Brexit” referendum reflects Europeans’ fundamental dilemma: “ever closer union” makes substantial policy sense in a wide range of areas, but domestic politics no longer supports increasing European integration.  

Dr. Jupille will discuss the logic of those three little words from the 1957 Rome Treaty, “ever closer union” , use Brexit to to illustrate the strong countervailing logic of national politics, and reflect on the future of both Britain and the European Union.
