Coronavirus: European nations choose self-preservation over the Union | Seniša Malešević in TRTWorld

UCD Full Professor of Sociology, Siniša Malešević, was recently quoted in an article for TRTWorld exploring how national self-interest is the driving factor behind EU memberstates' respective responses to the COVID-19 emergency.

Coronavirus: Europen nations chose self-preservation over the Union draws atention to some discontent within EU member states and it's close neighbours at the lack of a Europe wide support initiative to help manage the unfolding crisis.

Maleševic draws on some of the themes in his Cambridge University Press book Grounded Nationalism by demonstrating that the COVID-19 response highlights that nation-states remain the key actor in their citizen's lives.
