Conference organized by the Association for International Affairs (AMO) in cooperation with the Hanns-Seidel-Stiftung, the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies and the Anglo-American University in Prague.

The purpose of the conference is to discuss prospects for the EU enlargement. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has declared that there will be no Enlargement within the mandate of his college. The rules for candidate countries are stricter than previously and the EU has many internal issues to tackle. Is the EU enlargement a closed chapter and do we have to search for a new narrative with the countries aspiring for membership?
