The Euro crisis has exposed deep structural flaws in the European Union. Stagnant growth, rising unemployment, and public dissatisfaction are threatening to undermine the cohesion of the EU and cast the future of the European Project into doubt. While many in Europe are calling for deeper political and economic integration as a solution to Europe's problems, other EU members are starting to see that the Brussels power grab has gone too far. In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU to bring more powers back to London. Under the proposed plan, in 2017 the UK will hold an in-out referendum on a new settlement allowing the British people to decide if the UK should stay in the EU or leave. Join us as panelists discuss the future of the UK-EU relationship and what’s next for the European Union.
