Lessons Learned from Integration While Facing Threats of Disintegration in Europe

Washington, DC 2003
At the time when the European Union faces multiple external challenges at its borders from the South to the East and when it is confronted with the threats of internal disintegration from Brexit to Grexit, it is a good moment to remind ourselves that the EU has undergone an unprecedented integration through inclusion of several waves of new Member States from Central and Eastern Europe but also through absorbing the unified Germany.
The event will present a new book How Germany Unified and the EU Enlarged: Negotiating the Accession through Transplantation and Adaptation (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) by Tereza Novotná that reflects on the “lessons learned” from the EU enlargements and the unification of Germany and introduces the Transplantation and Adaptation models to policy makers who are contemplating other integrations in Europe (Cyprus, EU enlargement to Turkey) or elsewhere (the Korean peninsula).
A brief book presentation will be followed by contributions by other speakers and a Q&A session.
