Expansion of the EU: Opportunity or threat?
29/11/2023 @ 19:00 - 20:15 GMT
A formal decision to open EU membership negotiations with Ukraine and Moldova is due in December with other countries set to follow, potentially taking the bloc from an already unwieldy club of 27 to more than 35.
Our panel, including political scientists Ivan Krastev and Nathalie Tocci, German MEP Viola von Cramon and chaired by the Guardian’s Europe correspondent Jon Henley, will explore how much the EU will need to transform internally if it is to function as a group of 35. How could the union use this opportunity to become strategically independent in a menacing new world order? And what might be the consequences if it fails?
