The Future of Europe  - 9 March

Should the European Union Further Expand in the Eastern European Countries?

With Serbia being expected to join the European Union in 2025 and more started applications from Eastern European countries we must ask ourselves: how would the potential new additions influence the future of Europe?  Eastern European Students Association (EESA) has teamed up with the Erasmus Debating Society (EDS) to bring you an interactive lecture, followed by a debate to elaborate on the consequences of further expansion of the EU.

We have invited the researcher and lecturer on peace and conflict studies, Arlinda Rrustemi, and the Dutch politician and former civil servant, Anne Mulder to extensively address this topic. They will present geopolitical, economic and social arguments for and against further acceptance of most recently applying Eastern European countries by the European Union. Then, the attendees are given the opportunity to apply and further expand their knowledge in a Laherhouse-style debating session.
