This event is in the past.
On behalf of our WB2EU network partners, and the Representation of the European Commission in Germany we cordially invite you to our “WB2EU Ideas go public debate” in Berlin.
Under the title "Towards a credible EU Enlargement Policy? What does German "Zeitenwende" mean for the Western Balkans?", the event will extend the current discussion on EU enlargement policy in the Western Balkans to the broad public in Germany. The debate will focus on the question to what extent the "Zeitenwende" proclaimed by Chancellor Scholz after Russia's invasion of Ukraine has an impact on the EU's enlargement policy in the Western Balkans. It will furthermore offer the opportunity to get first hand insights on the current developments in the region.
The event takes place in cooperation with the Representation of the European Commission in Germany at Europäisches Haus, Unter den Linden 78, 10117 Berlin. We are very much looking forward to your participation.
