Small states and open borders in the EU
This workshop is part of the ongoing project "Navigating the Storm: The Challenges for Small States in Europe".
As the international scene is facing increasingly unstable and unpredictable circumstances, questions such as the free movement of people have been publicly questioned by many European countries. Significant migration has resulted in border controls between member states and terrorist attacks have forced countries to rethink their wider sense of security. The unity and openness of the EU is at stake, which is especially worrying for the small member states that are highly dependent on institutional structures and cooperation to ensure their prosperity. The costs of a divided Europe are not only economic but have a greater bearing on the overall European integration and the future of institutional cooperation. How will the member states address this challenge? What does the reinforcement of border controls mean to the European integration in general, and to its small states in particular?
These and similar questions will be addressed at the workshop, where researchers from different European universities are invited to present their own perspectives on the topic, and then engage in a following panel discussion. For more information about the workshop, see the programme.
