Abstract

This report seeks to inquire about the European Union, EU, and its need to employ a higher degree of integration in light of recent events. As of late the EU has faced a series of crises of which their policies are unfamiliar in handling them properly. Albeit the issues are numerous and the dimensions concerning them vary, this report will focus on three: the mass migration of refugees most notably from Syria, the recent United Kingdom referendum which resulted in a majority vote for seceding from the EU, and the need to renovate its current foreign and security policies. This report will examine the three key points through a content analysis method of a variety of sources including books, research papers, and data on current events
