Project: Forecasting Societies Adaptive Capacities to Climate Change (FUTURESOC, FP7 230195)


The European Union is currently undergoing a major crisis within its institutions. Many observers think the EU is doomed, particularly in view of the current refugee situation, when in many countries the national agenda overrides the European project and the aggregate result is widely perceived as a failure of European-level governance. This skepticism is heightened by the UK referendum on continued EU membership.

Is it realistic to return to the old system of nation states with closed borders and individual currencies? And does a majority of the European population want such an outcome?
