The world needs the European Union now more than ever. Despite recent crises and the hard blow dealt by the Brexit vote, the EU may well be the world's best line of defense against today's most serious threats: isolationism, protectionism, nationalism and extremism in all forms, all of which are once again growing in Europe and beyond. The key to enabling the EU to meet this potential – to save itself and the world from catastrophe – is for member states urgently to adopt a "European Union first" mantra.It would drive member states to consolidate the EU, thereby enabling it to overcome the challenges it faces and help preserve the international order.If the U.S. cannot be counted on to support global stability, the EU's model and experience will become even more important.Despite its flaws, the EU has proved time and again how differences can be resolved peacefully and constructively.On the contrary, the point is to highlight why EU member states must dedicate themselves to the continued construction of a stronger and deeper union. For the sake of Europe and the world, it is time to put the EU first.
