The multiple crises facing the European Union — from high youth unemployment to cross-border terrorism — raise the question whether or not the bloc can survive in its current form. The probability of a EU breakup may still be fairly low, but the impact would be high.
Wikistrat recently conducted a crowdsourced analysis of what would happen if the EU does disintegrate. Our analysts identified the stresses that could lead to a partial or complete dissolution as well as the consequences breakup would carry.
Wikistrat’s research suggests that a partial or complete breakdown of the EU would hardly slow the forces driving disintegration. Instead, many of the drivers of disintegration would remain — and in some cases would be exacerbated.
