As many of you might remember from years past, the delegation of the European Union offers a competition for Canadian students who are interested in writing journalistic pieces. Students are asked to write a piece focusing on a current issue facing the European Union or EU-Canada relations. In terms of format, the work may be either written (a news story of maximum 1,000 words) or audiovisual (a report of up to 90 seconds duration).
The German Chancellor got her way, and the European Union moved closer to a split that may go far beyond the British decision to refuse consonance with its European partners. The December 8 and 9 meeting of the heads of state in Brussels will enter text books of European integration as the days where Britain again decided to step out of the joint boat of Europe, and where democracy landed a huge defeat. Merkel may have won the battle but Europe lost the war.
The Department of Political Science, the Institute for European Studies, the Jean Monnet Chair Program, the Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions, and the Liu Institute for Global Issues, invite you to a roundtable discussion on:
