At a time when the European Union faces numerous obstacles, this 13th edition of the Green European Journal explores the forces of integration and disintegration at play today in Europe. An exploration, in sum, of the tectonic shifts occurring beneath the surface. As a new political landscape emerges and as tensions between retreating and openness in Europe appear, the question is: what is the purpose of European integration and where is it leading?
Green European Foundation is organising a number of Summer Universities in 2016 on a variety of topics. These educational events are hosted throughout Europe, in collaboration with many national Green partners. This year's programme reflects the ongoing social, political and environmental issues within the European context and it provides relevant analysis of national case studies. The participants will be provided with opportunities to make new connections, broaden horizons and have fascinating debates. Specific information about this year's offer is available on this page.
