étant en préparation d'un concours ayant pour sujet la politique anglophone, j'ai fait un essai concernant les potentielles sorties de l'Europe.

From the migrant crisis to Brexit and Grexit, the European Union is facing various internal and external issues. Potential exits from the European Union or the Eurozone threaten to break the Union apart. Do they foreshadow the end of the European project? Is the European Union gradually drifting towards its end?
Brexit, Grexit and the other possibilities of „exits‟ do represent a real danger to the European Union. They could have a “domino effect”, as one exit could weaken the apparent European unity even more. In addition to Grexit and Brexit, other potential exits from the EU or the Eurozone have been evoked, like Auxit, Austria’s withdrawal from the EU. Besides, Brexit could cause political contagion and lead other countries to reconsider their relationship with the European Union.
Furthermore, although their consequences would be different, Brexit and Grexit could definitely jeopardise Europe. Grexit may weaken the euro. Brexit would have a significant impact on the European Union insofar as the EU would lose one of its most influential members, and its position in the world would hence undoubtedly be affected.
Yet, these potential exits may still be avoided. Thanks to proposals such as the “two-speed Europe”, they may never happen. Similarly, if the austerity policy is called into question, or if EU leaders are ready to accommodate some of David Cameron’s demands, Brexit and other exits may become less likely.
And even in the event that they were not avoided, the very fact of losing members might lead to a new, resized and redeveloped European project. Indeed, Grexit may also be seen as step which would permit the Eurozone to form a closer core; and a closer union made up of willing members would eventually be stronger than one made up of reluctant members.
To conclude, Brexit, Grexit and the other potential exits from the European Union or the Eurozone point to the end of the European original ideal, but maybe not of the European Union itself, provided the current difficulties are turned into opportunities.
