Enhancing democracy pre and post EU accession

Experts Seminar with the support of the European Forum for Democracy and Solidarity.

The quest for revitalising the EU enlargement policy of European progressives brought together the Foundation for European Progressives Studies (FEPS) and the European Forum for Democracy in Solidarity (EFDS) in the research programme Copenhagen revisited in 2011. The result of this cooperation was the book EU Enlargement Anno 2012 – A Progressive Engagement. The book was the culmination of the first phase of a common research programme. It has successfully addressed several challenges, but at the same time new questions emerged that pointed out the direction towards the second phase of the project.

The second phase will analyse the obstacles to EU enlargement in a different framework, putting the current crisis of traditional representative democracy at the core of the research focus, both within the EU and in the Southeast European Region and Turkey.

The event will be the launching meeting of the research programme. Its objective is to discuss and finalise the research framework for the upcoming two years.
