Central & Eastern Europe in the EU: Silent Partners? 6-7 June 2008

•    Central & Eastern Europe in the EU &ndash Silent Partners?

06-07 June 2008, University of Glasgow.

CRCEES and the Department of Central & East European Studies will host the 1st Annual Assessing Accession Research Symposium.

The symposium will take the format of a roundtable-style workshop and will focus primarily on evaluating whether the EU's Central & East European member states have successfully managed to integrate themselves into the EU's political structures or whether they should be viewed as 'silent partners' in a project still dominated by the old guard.

Day one of the symposium will provide participants an opportunity to introduce their research within the context of two roundtable discussions which will debate the impact of the 2004 accession states on the EU's political institutions and policy process.

Day two will consist of an open discussion session where participants will have the opportunity to discuss the direction of Assessing Accession as a networking and research initiative.

Specific interest will be paid to the development of a permanent study group and possible working partnerships.
Assessing Accession is supported by CRCEES and the Adam Smith Research Foundation through its Seedcorn Funding Initative.

The symposium is also supported by the Adam Smith Research Foundation Seedcorn Fund. For further information please see http://assessingaccession.eu
