What did the EU enlargement bring for the Czech Republic and other countries twelve years ago?

EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy would like to invite you to a public discussion introducing Tereza Novotná’s new publication "How Germany Unified and the EU Enlarged: Negotiating the Accession through Transplantation and Adaptation".

Twelve years ago the Czech Republic and other nine countries entered the European Union. Regardless of the many challenges the EU is facing today, this EU enlargement has been the most successful one since 1989, especially compared to other integration processes such as the unification of Germany or the following EU enlargements.

The discussion takes place on April 28, 2016 from 7:30pm till 9:00 pm in the premises of People in Need (Vodičkova 37, Praha 1). 


Radomír Špok, executive director of EUROPEUM


Vladimír Špidla, director of prime minister office, former prime minister and former European Commisioner

Tereza Novotná, author of the book, Institute of European Studies, Université libre de Bruxelles 


Registration for discussion necessary. Please register here

The discussion will be on Czech only.
