Europe at the crossroads: risks and prospects

The European Union is going through tough and challenging times. The sluggish recovery from the 2008 financial crisis has combined with new challenges – Brexit, the migration crisis, and a chilling in relations with Russia, to name a few – are testing the very fabric of the European Union body politic. Does Europe’s leaders have the vision and political mandate to manage these systemic challenges? How should business and investors navigate the fault lines in the EU?
