Helena Tendera-Właszczuk

Abstract


Since 2000, the intensive debate on the future of the European integration has started again. The beginning of the current debate was the Constitutional Treaty, which did not come to force. The idea of creating a federal organization collapsed. The future model of integration is still an open question. On the other hand,the economic crisis of the world economy, started in 2008, which influenced the EU very strongly, rises aquestionwhether the European Union is able to face internal and external crisis. The possible scenariosfor the European Union in the years to come can be very different. The main objective of the paper is toanalyze the current model of the European integration, which consists of very many federal model’s elements but is still far away from federation. The influence of the treaties on the hybrid model of integration is discussed in the paper. There are three possible scenarios for the future of the EU presented in this paper.
