The European Union after 2014: A New Vitality, or Missed Opportunitities?

2014 is a year of remarkable change for the EU. It has a new Parliament, it will have new Presidents of European Council and of the European Commission, it will have a new Commission (even if some of the faces are the same), and a new High Representative. It has commenced a new budget period and is on the verge of having a Banking Union - of sorts...... What does this mean for Europeans? What does it mean for us, and for the Asian region?

This three day intensvie programme will be interesting for teachers of

    • History
      Global and International Politics

      Social and Cultural Studies


      European languages

The programme will cover a brief overview of the European Institutions: the who, what and where of how the EU operates, What does the EU stand for in the new world? Does the EU still matter, can it overcome its democratic deficit? Do Australia and New Zealand want closer ties with the EU?
