Jean Monnet EU-Australia Centre of Excellence for Economic Cooperation

July 15, 2020

Disclaimer: This ‘event’ is a visiting fellowship application with the Australia National University (ANU)

EU–Australia economic cooperation is entering an ambitious new phase. This is taking place in the context of the shifting international economic landscape and there is an increasing focus on climate change as an absolute priority. Technological advances and global value chains have redefined traditional flows of goods, capital and services across borders and tested the limits of

CALL FOR PAPERS The Future of EU Enlargement and Partnership Policies: EU Actorness in SouthEastern Europe and the Eastern Neighbourhood

May 25, 2020

An International Conference Athens, Greece, 25-26 May 2020. After the completion of the 2004/07 enlargement round and Croatia’s accession in 2013, the EU seems to have forgotten its other neighbours who are still hoping for an ‘EU future’. The hope that Western Balkan accession had become a priority on the EU agenda following European Commission President Junker’s optimistic State of the Union speech in 2017 has so far largely evaporated.
