Europe in 2040 : three scenarios
AbstractIn this paper, we explore three scenarios for the future of the European Union, using history and reasoned imagination as guides. Our three scenarios are rooted in European contemporary challenges but draw on three ages that have shaped what Europe has become. Scenario 1 harks back to Antiquity (âthe Empty Empireâ), scenario 2 to the Middle Age (âReturn of the City-statesâ) and scenario 3 to the Renaissance (âRenascent Europeâ).
