brexit graffitti

As we approach the end of 2020 and Britain’s definitive exit from the European Union, it is a good moment to assess the state of the Union itself.


Without one of its big three member states the EU is facing new challenges, but also new opportunities, and in the context of both the Covid crisis and a new US presidential term.

Where is Europe heading, how united is it, and what are the major obstacles in its path?

To consider these questions the Centre for Geopolitics assembled an expert panel, consisting of Sidney Sussex academics from History, Law and International Relations together with, in Lord Owen, one of the UK’s most experienced and distinguished practitioners of diplomacy.
