Happy Dog Takes on the World: Challenges of the European Union in the 21st Century

February 2, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

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 us, the City Club of Cleveland, 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. 



Elliot Posner, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, Case Western Reserve University

Gillian Weiss, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of History, Case Western Reserve University

This discussion will be moderated by WCPN host/producer Tony Ganzer.
