    Guest speakers:
    Markus Thiel, Florida International University
    Ambler H. Moss, Jr., University of Miami
    Joaquin Roy, Director, EU Center

    Subtopics to be discussed: Does Europe exist? Who are the Europeans? What is the European Union? What is a "nation"? What is a European "state" What is the challenge of "sub-state" nationalism? The cases of Catalonia, Scotland, and others

    Note: September 11 is the National Day of Catalonia. Plans for a referendum for independence are debated. The United Kingdom may face similar challenge. Other substates/regions have been contemplating secession. Meanwhile, European identity and citizenship are concepts under close scrutiny. With the role of the European Union under questioning, observers must pay due attention to these related issues.
