Civil Society in Contemporary Europe - EUST1002

Year - 2020

Over the past two decades the face of Europe has changed dramatically. In this unit we examine the new ways in which European nations and the European Union negotiate issues of co-operation and co-existence, focusing on aspects of civil society, social change and cultural diversity. Case studies include the implications of Brexit, the re-emergence of the far right, immigration and multiculturalism, generational change, and other latest developments in Europe.
