THE CRISIS OF EUROPEAN UNION: DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN POLICY DIMENSION - European Union Needs a Therapy
During this current period when the Republic of Serbia has made great efforts to fulfil all European Union’s criteria (Copenhagen-related one and the other ones) and open and then close 35 negotiating chapters as preconditions for the EU accession (which tentatively could happen in 2025), the European Union has gone through a turbulent period of development with challenges of new internal divisions and groupings, with the institution crisis and reduced impact in global geopolitical relations in a globalized world. There is a question raised whether the European Union will regroup into three groups of states, following the exit of Great Britain in 2019 and the emergence of the need for finding appropriate attitudes regarding the crisis issues of an unstoppable wave of refugees, economic crisis in several states and the attempts of the secession of Catalonia, or the survival of this large economic and political integrative unit of half a billion people will be brought into question. In this paper author writes about concrete problems of the European Union and its most important institutions regarding its numerous weak points and incomplete positioning of the European Union in the constellation of international relations, its oportunism in decision making and the placement of the European Union into the service of defence of global geopolitical domination of the United States of America and NATO as a means to implement such politics.
