The Future of the EU:
The Rise of Nationalism –
The Current EU-US Relationship

Nathalie Tocci

Director
Istituto Affari Internazionali

“What is the point of European integration today?” The rationales for EU integration continue to be peace, economic opportunity and political necessity for security in a global changing world. However, the European project is undergoing an existential crisis of identity, Ms. Tocci reported, as rising nationalism and alternative world economic and political models gain popularity, posing threats from within. A new dynamism driving renewal and rejuvenation of the EU is essential to maintain it as a framework for democratic governance in the region. And part of this evolution requires a rebalancing of the EU’s relationship with the US, with the EU shouldering more responsibility and the US showing greater respect for the EU.
