About this event
Before the outbreak of war in Ukraine, the EU grappled for at least a decade with enlargement fatigue. But Russian aggression spurred the bloc to reassess a range of critical policies, including those related to energy, economy, and security, and to reconsider enlargement, one of the EU's most potent tools. The recent November 8 enlargement package reflects this recalibration. As Brussels launches this ambitious strategy, the trajectory of its association with Türkiye could be transformed.
Join us for a discussion, hosted in cooperation with the Economic Development Foundation, that explores the evolving landscape of EU-Türkiye relations. A light lunch will be served before the event.
