Think Tank Forum: Rethinking Enlargement in times of Geopolitical Earthquakes


We would like to invite you to watch the live broadcast of the conference "Think Tank Forum: Rethinking Enlargement in times of Geopolitical Earthquakes", which will take place on Thursday 13 October at 15:00. Live broadcast is only a part of a two day conference.

The conference is organized by EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy and Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Prague.

This unique forum will gather around 80 experts - think-tankers, civil servants from EU Member States, WB, and Associated Trio, Members of the European Parliament, and representatives of DG NEAR dealing with the EU enlargement policy or more broadly with the process of European integration. Our goal is to provide space for an open exchange of views and to come up with concrete recommendations on how to enhance the EU enlargement policy
