The EU enlargement process has increasingly turned into a geopolitical necessity. The reinvigorated process of integration is clearly being led by the situation in Ukraine which has brought to the forefront an important question: To what extent can the enlargement process provide security for the neighborhoods, as well as make EU member states safer? Current revisions of the EU approach to enlargement policy could lead to an enhanced role for the EU as a regional security actor and a global actor. This webinar will assess the prospects for increased security engagement with candidate countries on their path towards EU.
