When I decided to write about the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, I supposed that I could eviscerate the issues discussed during the transition period, which will end on 31 December 2020, in an 800 to 1000-word post .
Yesterday though, a sudden realisation struck me: I had to lay solid foundations before attempting to describe what lies ahead.
Therefore, I've organised my posts in the following way:
1) A Brief History of the European Union, from the Kalergi Plan to the Lisbon Treaty.
2) The Present--Part 1: Military alliances, economy in Euroland and in the countries who haven't adopted the Euro.
3) The Present--Part 2: Civil society--economic results Fallout, impact of uncontrolled immigration especially on Sweden, Italy, France and Germany, and the support to the EU.
4) The Justice System: The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), the EU Arrest Warrant (EAW).
5) How the EU works: EU Parliament, EU Council, EU Commission, EU President, EU Troika, EU institutions and democracy.
6) The Future of the EU: EU Army, EURO, new member states, freedom of speech and of expression, justice system.
And, at last but not least:
7) The Future of the Relationship between the UK and the EU: what's already been agreed upon, and what's being debated.
I hope I'll be able to offer you a concise but deep understanding of this complex subject, and as usual I'll include a list of resources like videos, articles, websites and books so you can investigate it further if you so wish, and make up your own mind.
SAVE THE DATE: The first post of this series will go live on 25 March.
In the meantime, stay safe dear Seekers, and let me know your thoughts on this EU-UK series in the comments below.
