EU in Focus: What is the EU? How Does It Work? - Fall 2017
date: September 18, 2017

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.

Recently, the decision by British voters for the UK to leave the EU sent shock waves across the Union.

Through NYU Florence´s Fall 2017 "EU in Focus series" students will learn more about what the EU is, how it works, and its role as an international actor.

What will the long term impact of the British exit (Brexit) be?

Join us this fall to be part of the discussion at this critical moment in Europe’s history. Students who participate in a working group linked to the series will also develop a deeper understanding of how EU policy-making works through the study of two specific policy areas: Immigration and the Environment. The series will culminate in a visit to Brussels to visit the European institutions on the ground and to meet with actors and experts to further deepen their understanding of the issues.

Interested students must attend the introductory meeting on September 18, 2017 at 6pm at Villa Sassetti.

Students can apply to be part of the working group until September 20, 2017 by emailing explaining why they would like to participate and how it would enhance their studies at NYU Florence.
