A theory of EU differentiation
Brexit occurred during a challenging period for the EU: simultaneously with the Euro crisis and the European migration and refugee crisis. Brexit spotlighted some of the EU’s vulnerabilities, and a number of Member States expressed concerns that brought into question the integration project overall. Today, the EU is considering differentiation options, with the EU’s White Paper recommending differentiation to a greater or lesser degree, depending on the circumstances. It remains unknown whether the current differentiation is the problem or part of the solution. The EU-funded EU3D project will implement a novel and rigorous analytical approach to studying the multilevel EU’s institutional and constitutional structures. It will develop a theory of differentiation analysing its acceptability, sustainability and legitimacy, apposite to the current debate.
