Becoming an EU member II
“Now we have to refocus on where we stand and what we really want to achieve.”
Following our previous episode “Becoming an EU Member - The case of Romania, Bulgaria, and Croatia”, this podcast focuses on Southeast European countries. Therefore, Sebastian Schäffer (Managing Director at IDM) is welcoming two European Enlargement specialists: Mag. Katalin-Tünde Huber - Head of Unit "EU Enlargement" at the Ministry for Europe and International affairs; and Ambassador Klaus Wölfer - Head of Department Southeast Europe and EU Enlargement Special Representative for the Western Balkans Federal Ministry for Europe and International Affairs, as well as a member of the board here at IDM.
Together, they will discuss the opportunities and challenges of European enlargement regarding Southeast European Countries.
Which challenges lie underneath the region? What did we learn from the 6th enlargement back in 2013? How important is the Copenhagen Criteria for the enlargement process? Finally, how does the enlargement process impact the “old member states” and their societies? Does it foster EU skepticism?
