In this seminar Professor Erik Jones will build on a series of lectures held between 1997- 2004 in an attempt to clarify whether our current problem consitutes a crisis, why it is happening now, and what, if anything we should do about it. Will economic growth and interaction eradicate this malaise, or do we have to make some changes to our approach, outlook and policies?
Nearly every other decade has had its own â€˜crisisâ€™ in Europe. The word crisis, however, though it may evoke emotion, does not add much in terms of meaning. What is our â€˜crisisâ€™ all about?
There have been periods of instability in Europe in the past, but the troubled times we are going through at the moment differ from those experienced since the second world war. Geographically, institutionally, economically and politically, we appear to have reached what could be called â€˜the limits of European integrationâ€™.
