The future of europe l.jpg
The Future of Europe

  • Athina, 14-16 May 2004

  • Main topics and results:

    • The enlarged EU needs more maturity before further enlargement

    • The European Constitution is a major step for the EU to become a political actor

    • There is a huge distance between the EU decision-makers and the citizens, more communication and transparency are needed


Belarus ukraine eu l.jpg
Belarus, Ukraine & EU

  • Minsk, 3-5 June 2004

  • Main topics and results:

    • Ukraine and Belarus between the EU and Russia => a mediating role?

    • A decision towards the west might help to speed up the democratisation process

    • Progress in the educational systems should be done


Russia eu l.jpg
Russia & EU

  • Moskva and Sankt Petersburg, 2-11 July 2004

  • Main topics and results:

    • Russia is not expected to join the EU but political and cultural co-operation should be strengthened

    • The history of Russia and the former Russian and Soviet territories (partly EU member states) should be enlightened in order to reduce stereotypes and prejudices

    • Mobility between the EU and Russia should be facilitated (visa, Erasmus)


Romania bulgaria eu l.jpg
Romania, Bulgaria & EU

  • Bucuresti, 16-19 September 2004

  • Main topics and results:

    • Both Romania and Bulgaria are expected to join the EU in a few years

    • Both Romania, Bulgaria and the EU will benefit from the EU accession in the long run

    • But we should not ignore the difficulties the next EU enlargement will bring, the expectations currently are too high


Turkey eu l.jpg
Turkey & EU

  • Izmir, 21-24 October 2004

  • Main topics and results:

    • Turkey did huge progress in the past years in order to fulfil the Copenhagen criteria

    • Many EU citizens are not ready for accepting Turkey in the EU, much more communication is needed

    • The simulation of the European Council did not lead to the decision to open EU accession negotiations with Turkey, mainly because of the Cyprus issue


Western balkans eu l.jpg
Western Balkans & EU

  • Sarajevo and Mostar, 9-13 November 2004

  • Main topics and results:

    • The region made a strongdevelopment in the past years, the EU perspective is significant for the stability of the region, the borders still are subject to negotiation

    • The management of multiethnic societies and human rights includes the requirement that refugees return back home

    • The corruption in higher education has to be overcome in order to ensure fairness and equal chances
