A Panel Discussion

The European Union (EU) is a politico-economic union of 28 member-states. Created after World War II to foster economic cooperation, the EU has delivered nearly half a century of peace, stability, and prosperity to its more than 500 million citizens.


Currently, the EU is facing historic challenges -  Russia's resurgence, the sovereign debt crisis and the euro, the refugee crisis, aftermath of the attacks in France, terrorism and Schengen, and the possible exit of Britain from the EU. These challenges are significant as, over the decades, the EU has emerged as a powerful co-equal of the U.S. when it comes to regulating the global economy


Join The City Club of Cleveland, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, International Partners in Mission, and the Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle Eastern Studies (NOCMES) for a discussion on how the EU can face its 21st century challenges.
