Discussing and promoting accession and EU integration: a project with DG NEAR

Honoured to be selected by the DG for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR), to undertake this initiative, the CDRSEE has embarked on a series of 2 roundtables in Greece, on issues of accession and EU integration.

The aim of the initiative is to explore the multi-faceted themes around Western Balkan countries’ accession to the EU, with a different focus at each roundtable, involving input from EU experts and Greek and Southeast European actors in the field.

The first roundtable took place in Athens on June 15th, 2016 at which the topic of media transparency and standards in the Western Balkans was discussed. 

With Thessaloniki as the location for Roundtable 2, the topic due to be covered is the social inclusion within the framework of EU accession.
