The Crisis of EU Enlargement: Ottawa Report Launch

Wednesday 8 January, 16:00-17:30 (EST)
Senate Room, Robertson Hall (6th Floor), Carleton University, Ottawa
Speakers: Luc-André Brunet, David Long, Crina Viju, Piotr Dutkiewicz, Joan DeBardeleben

Enlargement is widely hailed as the EU’s most successful policy, largely responsible for the successful transition from dictatorship to democracy first in Southern Europe, then in Central and Eastern Europe after the end of the Cold War. Yet forty years after the first enlargement, which saw the UK join the European Community, confidence in the European project seems to be at an all-time low. From enlargement fatigue within the EU to the fading prospects of Turkish accession to Ukraine’s rejection of closer ties with the EU, enlargement faces daunting challenges. In the context of the ongoing economic and political crises in the EU, we may well ask: Is EU Enlargement in crisis?

This roundtable marked the Canadian launch of the latest LSE IDEAS Special Report, “The Crisis of EU Enlargement”. An opening statement was made by report editor Luc-André Brunet, who also chaired the roundtable.  Panellists from Carleton University were David Long, Crina Viju, Piot Dutkiewicz, and report contributor Joan DeBardeleben. 

This event was organised in collaboration with the Centre for European Studies at Carleton University.
