In a time marked by unrest and geopolitical tensions, the EU faces significant challenges. However, the Union has shown resilience. While many feared a few years ago that several member states would follow in the footsteps of the United Kingdom and leave the Union, a new expansion of the EU is instead high on the agenda in 2024. In light of this development, the EU faces a number of choices that in various ways affect the Union's depth and size.

Based on current research, the book's authors discuss several important challenges and questions: How are the contours of a larger EU emerging, and what premises will apply for the entry of new members? What lessons can be learned from the United Kingdom's exit from the EU, and how has Brexit affected the political dynamics in the Union? Does European solidarity imply a requirement for a collective defense of the EU? How are renewed refugee flows to the EU managed in the shadow of a threatening world? What should the content of EU citizenship be, and how should solidarity between workers be shaped? How will the future dynamics of the EU labor market develop in light of artificial intelligence?

These and other questions are illuminated in the twenty-seventh edition of Europaperspektiv. The book is interdisciplinary and contains nine chapters written by researchers in law, economics, and political science who analyze the EU's depth and size from various perspectives in a time of unrest.

Editors: Björn Lundqvist, Anna Michalski, and Lars Oxelheim.
