The European Union's New Eastern Border

September 12, 2005 // 8:30am4:30pm
Global Europe Program
The latest wave of European Union (EU) enlargement has vastly extended the space of peace and prosperity in Europe. This realm of international cooperation was achieved in part by lifting internal borders to allow free movement of goods and services, and it is preserved by a reinforced external border. The new EU member states from Eastern Europe have become the custodians of that new border. To the extent that this hard border has been erected between countries that have shared a long history of cooperation, EU enlargement has raised a series of issues in the relations between several country pairs, namely: Poland and Ukraine; Estonia and Latvia and Russia; and Lithuania and Belarus. Conference participants include: Rodric Braithwaite, former British Ambassador to the Soviet Union/Russian Federation, and recent Public Policy Scholar, Woodrow Wilson Center; Janusz Bugajski, Director, East European Project, CSIS; Ryszard Cholewinski, Department of Law, University of Leicester; Michele Commercio, Department of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania; John Czaplicka, Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, Harvard University; Oleh Havrylyshyn, International Monetary Fund; Martha Merritt, The Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame; Anatoly Mikhailov, Rector, European Humanities University in exile–Vilnius; Ugnius Trumpa, President, Lithuanian Free Market Institute, Vilnius; Kataryna Wolczuk, Center for Russian and East European Studies, University of Birmingham; and Zhanna Zaionchkovskaya, Institute of Economic Forecasting, Moscow.
