The European Union faces serious internal and external challenges. While the sovereign debt and banking crises are not presently acute, socio-economic and political situations have turned dire in a number of member states. High unemployment rates, the lack of a credible growth narrative, and rising right- and left-wing populism risk are undermining the broad support that European integration has enjoyed since its inception. Although the EU has shown a considerable degree of resilience in the recent crises and has adapted its governance structures accordingly, in particular in the euro area, further integration remains to be designed and implemented. GMF’s Europe Program engages in the discussion on the drivers of disintegration and integration in the EU and explores the implications of these developments for the transatlantic partnership. GMF further contributes to the policy debate on the future of the EU through its research, convening, and networking activities.
