This paper will aim to predict some of the most drastic effects of the pandemic on European integration and propose specific measures which could help the European Union come out of this crisis more united and better prepared to tackle the challenges of the post-Covid world. It will be divided in four parts, focusing respectively on the economic, political, defence, and labour market consequences of the pandemic. In each part, two or three key issues will be identified and analysed, and, where appropriate, concrete measures will be recommended to make the European Union more capable of dealing with the problems caused by the pandemic and better prepared for similar future circumstances.
