Over the last two decades, the EU has faced a myriad of crises. During the 2010s, it experienced the sovereign debt and migration crises. During the 2020s, the pandemic and the Russian aggression against Ukraine have confronted the Union with a new set of challenges. While the 2010s crises were averted through monetary policy and an established social structure, the 2020s crises have called the social structure itself into question. In particular, the Russian war is affecting the EU’s consensus on major strategies, such as the growth model and the security model. This seminar will assess critical questions on how Brussels is dealing with the consequences of the pandemic and the war to manage these crises successfully.
