Rethinking EU's Enlargement from Western Balkans to Eastern Neighbourhood

On-site in Tartu 8 – 14 August 2022

The course will concentrate on the European Union and its future enlargement in Western Balkans and Eastern Neighbourhood. Past years have brought Europe several new challenges tied with migration, defence and security, enlargement and international threats from Russia. Little is left from the original goal of the Eastern Partnership as the most committed partners might be recognised as member candidates for the EU, while Azerbaijan and Armenia could develop more effective bilateral relations with the EU. This indicates the need for a new direction regarding the EU's enlargement policy.

The summer course will provide participants with both practical and theoretical knowledge and skills to analyse and problem-solve related issues.

Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies offers an extensive experience in arranging and managing different learning opportunities (MOOCs, trainings, summer schools) along with experts working with the topics involved.
