Integrating Diversity in the European Union (InDivEU) is a Horizon 2020 funded research project aimed at contributing concretely to the current debate on the ‘Future of Europe’ by assessing, developing and testing a range of models and scenarios for different levels of integration among EU member states. It runs from January 2019 to December 2021, and its research agenda is organised around four interconnected interdisciplinary blocks.
- The foundations analyse the philosophical foundations of legitimate Differentiated Integration (DI), the legal and constitutional acceptability of DI and a thorough exploration of the DI preferences of citizens, governments and parties;
- The evolution investigates the patterns, causes and effects of DI;
- The zooming-in considers internal and external differentiation, differentiation through flexible implementation and alternative forms of differentiation;
- The scenarios provide evidence-based advice on designing future DI.
Now halfway, through the InDivEU project, the consortium of outstanding scholars gather together to present and discuss the results achieved so far.
