On 7th April 2015, the Balkan Civil Society Development Network (BCSDN), along with the European Policy Institute - Skopje (EPI), organized a public debate on “Rethinking Enlargement? The impact of Turkey’s EU integration process on the Western Balkans” at the EU InfoCentre in Skopje.
The aim of the event was to discuss how the different modes of EU integration have affected the enlargement process and to assess the impact of the Turkish integration process on the EU enlargement towards the Western Balkans. The main discussants were Prof. Dr. Meltem Müftüler-Bac from Sabanci University, Istanbul and EPI’s Director Dr. Malinka Ristevska Jordanova.
The debate was part of the project “Maximizing the Integration Capacity of the European Union”, implemented by a nine-partner consortium of academic, policy and management excellence that aims to strengthen existing links between the academic and policy world on matters relating to the current and future enlargement of the EU.
