The Center for EU Enlargement Studies of the Central European University, in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Budapest, the Willy Brandt School of the University of Erfurt, the University of Warsaw and the Metropolitan University of Prague, organized a two-day youth conference entitled “EU Neighborhood and Enlargement Policies Revisited.”
The conference accompanies graduate level courses on EU foreign policy taught at the partner institutions and provides an opportunity for the very best students to present and discuss their research with young colleagues and to further develop their academic skills in a conference situation. A year after the first, the conference, which took place on February 17-18, 2014, in Budapest at the Central European University, was the second occasion the partner institutions organized such an event in this framework and on this topic.
The event took place in turbulent times: few days before the start of the conference, demonstrations started in several cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, while on the second day of the meeting, deadly fights broke out between protesters and government forces in the center of Kyiv, Ukraine, on Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) where demonstrations have been on-going since November 21, 2013.
