The European Union's Enlargement Conundrum

July 6, 2023 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT

Membership in the European Union is critical for Ukraine’s reconstruction and future prosperity. A clear path to membership could serve as a catalyst for investment and growth given the European Union’s strong regulatory framework and history of economic integration. But the European Union is suffering from “enlargement fatigue” and has essentially slammed the door for new members. Incorporating Ukraine will likely also require the European Union to reform itself to enable greater decisionmaking flexibility, a new distribution of funds, and the ability to discipline member states for democratic backsliding and rule of law violations. 

Please join the CSIS Europe, Russia, and Eurasia Program on 7/6 at 1 p.m. EDT for a discussion with Max Bergmann, Ilke Toygür, and R. Daniel Kelemen, moderated by Donatienne Ruy, on a recent CSIS report about the European Union's enlargement policy and the prospect of Ukraine's accession. You can read the full report here

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
