EU Enlargement with Srdjan Cvijić


In our second Vienna Coffee House Conversation, Ivan Vejvoda speaks with Srdjan Cvijić. Senior Policy Analyst at the Open Society European Policy Institute and Europe’s Futures Fellow, Cvijić is a leading advocate on multiple foreign policy portfolios, particularly on the work of keeping the promise of European Union enlargement. In this discussion, Vejvoda and Cvijić dive into the multi-faceted dimensions of this ever-present European issue and consider the apparent fading of the EU’s fervor for greater expansion and the dulling of the EU flag’s luster in the ambitions of candidate countries. There has always been a conflict between the desire for a deeper Europe and the desire for a wider one – the thorny question of enlargement is where the Union’s frontiers meet the dilemmas at its heart.
