Short description of the event |

In the spirit of Jean Monnet’s desire to Continue, continue, there is no future for the people of Europe other than in Union, the objective of our volume is to analyse the process of the European construction, the road to the United States of Europe, with a focus on the challenges and issues the Union is currently facing, from illegal migration, to the refugee crisis, fake news, populism, insecurity, the Eastern Partnership, the SARS‐Cov‐ 2 pandemic and its effects on the European economy. For the European Union’s citizens, security was, is and will be a top priority. The volume is proposing a trans disciplinary, multileveled approach from a historical, economical, geopolitical, sociological and security‐related perspective regarding a highly important issue in the European Union. The volume brings to the fore an important issue on the international arena, namely the enlargement vs. integration debate in the European Union. The book is part of a constructivist approach with a dynamic perspective on the political, social, economic, military and societal, where the actors and the system structure are interconnected.
