Scott Erb is a Professor of Political Science at the University of Maine at

Farmington, whose specialty is German politics and the European Union. In this talk, Professor Erb will discuss both the background of the Syrian civil war and refugee crisis, and the profound impact this has on Germany and the European Union. The crisis has challenged the core principles of the EU and brings to the forefront the dilemmas of modern politics in the age of
