Webinars: EU Enlargment Lecture Series - SPRING 2024


The European Studies Center/European Union Center of Excellence (ESC/EUCE) along with the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (REEES) at Pitt offers a new lecture series to commemorate the20th Anniversary of the EU Enlargement. This virtual lecture series will be held on the last Thursday of each month this year. Each session is recorded and later posted on the internet with suggested additional readings and further resources

2024 marks the 20th anniversary of the biggest enlargement of the European Union in its history. Ten countries, mainly former socialist Eastern European states, almost doubled the EU from 15 to 25 member states. May 1, 2004, was the triumphal return to the European Family for many. But for some, it initiated a process of disenchantment with the EU and the West.

The Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at FIU, along with other European Union Centers of Excellence from the U.S. will participate.

In the Spring semester 2024, we will be able to connect with experts on Europe via virtual roundtable for four conversations from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM Eastern time zone on the last Thursday of each month:

Below are the dates, titles, and names of organizers. More information will be available before each Conversation.

Thursdays | 12:30 – 2:00 PM ET | All events will be virtual
