A conversation between scholars David Martin Jones of King's College, London, and Bela Tomka of Szeged University.
Is the European Union on the point of collapse? 
 
Britain’s vote to leave the EU has encouraged citizens in other EU countries to demand a referendum on membership. 
 
The countries of Central Europe are resisting the drive for ever closer political union, and are adamant in their refusal to allow the EU to impose a quota system for immigrants. 
 
Meanwhile, it is evident that the economic problems caused by the creation of the euro are far from over.  
 
More than at any time since its inception the future of the European Union looks uncertain.
 
These matters were the subject of a conversation between scholars David Martin Jones of King's College, London, and Bela Tomka of Szeged University.
 
The event, held on 10th November 2016, was organised jointly by the Danube Institute and the Economics and Law Faculties of the University of Szeged.
