The East-West divide in the European Union has finally commanded attention on both sides of the Atlantic. This is no ordinary divide: it takes place at a moment when the world is “in disarray” (Richard Haas); it thrives on a socio-economic divide; it is visible on the Eastern frontier of both NATO and the EU; it has a strong territorial component and thus has considerable disruptive potential. This talk focuses on the socio-economic divide and the way in which it feeds into perceptions of immigration, EU integration, security, and the relationship with the United States.
