Kaloyan Simeonov, associate professor in EU policies:
Europe has always coped with crises, it has the resilience to do it again
Two-speed Europe or European Union has entered the vernacular of politicians and analysts and the even stronger term ‘multi-speed’ EU is being used with increasing frequency. Taken to the extreme, any concept could pose a threat to the future of the EU. If Member States started picking and choosing when it comes to implementing the EU law or making decisions ‘? la carte’, it would no longer be an integrated union. On the other hand, in a bloc of 27 or 28 countries widely differing in level of economic and social development moving with the same speed is impossible.
