The EU has the world’s largest GDP, the world’s third largest population, and is among the highest ranking in the world for health, education and living conditions. The decision by British voters for the UK to leave the EU in a 2016 referendum sent shock waves across Europe, many fearing a domino effect. The intensification of a refugee crisis in Europe, which started in 2015, has also created sharp divisions among EU countries.

Through NYU Florence´s Spring 2018 "EU in Focus Series" students will learn more about what the EU is, how it works, its role as an international actor, and some of the main issues it faces today. Join us to be part of the discussion at this critical moment in Europe’s history.

 Students can apply to participate in a working group linked to the series in order to develop a deeper understanding of how EU policy-making works through the study of two specific policy areas: Brexit (the British exit) and Immigration. For the working group, the series will culminate in a trip to Brussels to visit the European institutions on the ground and meet with actors and experts.

For working group applicants, attendance at both introductory meetings on February 12 at 6pm and February 13 at 12pm at Villa Sassetti is mandatory. Students must also attend at least one of the two policy focus area talks - on Brexit or Migration - on February 20 or 27.

Students can apply to be part of the working group until February 15th by emailing lapietra.dialogues@nyu.edu explaining why they would like to participate and how it would enhance their studies at NYU Florence.

For more information write to the LPD Assistant Micol Visciano at mv92@nyu.edu.
