Enlarging the European Union

September 18, 2013 // 3:00pm5:00pm
Global Europe Program
The first enlargement was one of the most divisive and politically charged events in the history of the present-day European Union. French opposition to British membership meant that London had to wait more than a decade at the Community's door. Other countries, including Denmark and Ireland, whose requests for membership were tied to the coat-tails of the British applications, had to endure a similar wait. Enlarging the European Union focuses on the early history of the EU and in particular the role played by the European Commission, an institution whose aim was to gain influence over the Community's agenda and to shape its policies, including the issue of enlargement. Enlarging the European Union explores the Commission's interaction with the member states and the applicant countries between the years 1961 and 1973 and also the Commission's attempts to gain and wield influence over the first enlargement round.

Now the question remains: what next for the Southern Energy Corridor? Was TAP the right choice? Will Nabucco's original route to Central Europe be realized? How will Russia respond?

August 27, 2013 // 2:30pm4:00pm
Kissinger Institute on China and the United States
The Chinese economy’s ability to emerge from the global financial crisis seemingly unscathed while the United States slowly climbs out of recession bolsters a widespread image of a strong People’s Republic of China (PRC) rising against the backdrop of a declining United States of America. Is China's rise to economic power inevitable? Former U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce, Frank Lavin argues that China's continued growth in power and affluence will bring challenges but not a new Cold War. Check out Ambassador Lavin's remarks here!
