    "Divided in Diversity. The European Union in Crisis?"

    "In the aftermath of the Second World War, for the first time in European history, former enemies created a political union in order to coordinate their economic and political activities. Over the past decades, this unique cooperation of sovereign nation states gradually led to the emergence of a supranational political system: the European Union (EU). But the past years have seen the EU facing more and more criticism from various sides and a plethora of challenges threaten the European community and what held it together for a long time."
