15 years ago, in 2004, the European Union (EU) enlarged to eight Central and Eastern European states as well as to Malta and Cyprus. This event was a milestone in the history of the European integration project. The widespread feeling was that Europe would again be ‘reunited’. Indeed, the Eastern enlargement has contributed to substantially closer socio-economic ties between Eastern and Western Europe. In the educational sector, for instance, Eastern Europeans now have a share of roughly 20 percent of all Erasmus students coming to the VUB. Other Belgian universities have comparable numbers. Yet, 15 years after the enlargement, the relationship has also become more complicated. Some Eastern and Western member states struggle to overcome their differences on issues such as how to deal with asylum seekers in the EU and to guarantee the independence of democratic watchdogs including courts and media. This panel therefore asks: 15 years after the Eastern enlargement, are we growing together or moving apart?

Responding effectively to the large-scale movement of peoples has become one of the greatest challenges of our time. The changing patterns and visibility of the numbers   of people seeking refuge as well as better lives and opportunities across borders have all profoundly impacted the global political environment.

The Scaling Fences report focuses specifically on contemporary irregular African migrants arriving to Europe. In efforts to bring the voices of this contemporary group of travelers to the forefront of policy making, UNDP Africa has interviewed thousands of Africans who have travelled through irregular means to Europe.

The event will present findings and recommendations of the Scaling Fences research project and open a space for debate on irregular migration among academic experts and participants.

One of the most visible and fundamental features that the European and East Asian security landscapes have in common is the role that the United States plays as the ultimate security guarantor. The United States has the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Europe and a series of bilateral security treaties in East Asia, with the US-Japan alliance being the most prominent. The need to maintain and enhance the credibility of extended deterrence by the United States looks obvious for US allies, but it is equally important for the United States since the US-led international order—from which Washington benefits a great deal—is based on the maintenance of the European and Northeast Asian alliance structures that undergird it. 

The return of great power competition in Europe and East Asia raises questions about the future of (extended) deterrence in both regions. Notably, dwindling US resources and the return of great power competition across more than one front compel Washington to think more strategically about how to prioritize between Europe and Northeast Asia. Against that backdrop, how can allies in Europe and East Asia strengthen deterrence in their respective regions? What are the similarities, differences and possible connections between US alliances in Europe and Northeast Asia? Is the credibility of U.S. military protection for European allies connected with that for Asian allies? What are the perceptions of credibility of US extended deterrence that abound in Europe and Northeast Asia?

The Arctic region is transforming at an ever-increasing rate, and has a profound impact on the globe. The ice cover of the Arctic Ocean and the Greenland ice sheet are melting. As the darker ocean surface is revealed and left absorbent to sunlight, permafrost is melting and marine pollution from far-flung corners of the world make their way to the Arctic, the region is affected by the world and simultaneously has a fundamental impact on earth systems. Global political interest is increasing, driven by efforts to conserve the unique environment and by economic development, but also by high politics. Situated between Russia, Europe and North America, and with increasing Asian interest, the Arctic has been a remarkably cooperative and peaceful region. Similar to environmental dynamics, however, the region is not insulated from global political developments, and a changing international system is felt also in the Arctic.

Immigration is envisaged as part of an ‘emergent cultural cleavage’ across Western Europe. This public seminar focuses on the politicization of immigration in Portugal between 1995 and 2014. Politicization is interpreted as being formed by two distinct dimensions: salience and polarization of the political claims found within news articles extracted from newspapers. Notwithstanding the doubling of the foreign population settled in the country in the early 2000s, the diminished salience and the absence of significant political conflict suggest that immigration failed to become politicized in Portugal. Drawing on a comparative analysis with seven other European states (including new countries of immigration like Ireland and Spain) between 1995 and 2009, Portugal observed the lowest rate of politicization. Rather than being related with socio-economic factors, the lack of politicization of immigration was associated with the strategies of the mainstream parties, which successfully prevented the emergence of this topic as a significant political cleavage.

Participation of civil society and other stakeholders in the EU’s trade policy has been the subject of numerous recent books and articles. While some of these accounts stress the increased legitimacy and effectiveness brought by multistakeholder mechanisms established in the framework of free trade agreements, others are sceptical. Most research so far focuses on the EU and European stakeholders, not on its partner countries which have their own multistakeholder mechanisms. Moreover, the extant analysis is rarely taking a critical approach to analyse the inclusiveness, legitimacy and effectiveness of these mechanisms, rather focusing on the “surface level” of direct interaction between select stakeholders and the EU.

In this talk, we reflect on the sociopolitical developments that accompanied or led to (a) the decision to hold a referendum about exiting the European Union in the first place; (b) the somewhat surprising outcome of that referendum; and (c) the various attempts to interpret the referendum result and to act or not act upon it. We look at this phenomenon of Brexit from three angles: (a) as an accident - a series of unintended consequences; (b) as a uniquely British (or, more narrowly, English) phenomenon; and (c) as indicative of a broader political malaise or impasse, one which is by no means limited to the UK but which does manifest itself in a uniquely British fashion. We argue for the significance of this third angle.

Immigration governance has become so polarized these days that the EU and the European nation-states have difficulties agreeing on the way forward. Let’s try to imagine what would happen if they would decide to transfer considerable policy-making autonomy for migration to cities. Cities organize in international networks like the Mayors Migration Council, as they did on the occasion of the intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Migration Compact, in December 2018. Can cities rescue states and the EU from their failure in dealing with migration and diversity issues? Would migration governance be more progressive if it would be initiated by cities? More pragmatic? More efficient? And how to deal with policy divergence? This panel debate with academics and mayors digs deeper into this provocative thought-experiment on one of the most salient policy issues of today.

This research proposes a performative turn to understand how Europeanization functions as an everyday project. It takes the notion of performativity and argues that it is in the way everyday practices are performed that can get us to the bottom of how EUrope is performed. This involves how is Europeanness normalised and justified in different peripheries in opposition to non-Europeanness

Throughout modern history, Greece has exhibited a consistent determination to be part of, be allied to or be an adherent to Europe and the West. This is more obvious in the second half of the twentieth century, with Greece’s participation in early stages of European integration, the full memberhip in the European Communities, the gradual Europeanization of domestic and foreign policies, and, more recently in the continuing resolve to remain at the Eurozone’s core despite the severe economic and political displacement during the Eurocrisis. However, Greece’s determination to be considered European has been an element of Greece’s domestic and foreign policies, even before the establishment of the modern state in the early nineteenth century.

A senior German professor of international relations, an older man I have never met, is a discussant on my panel. “I knew it! I knew it! You must have studied abroad! I saw from your name that you probably come from the east. But when I read your paper, so well-written and well-structured, I knew immediately that you must have studied abroad!” He is all smiling. I stand perplexed, confused on what to make of it.

The signature of a Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) between Japan and the European Union (EU) on 17 July 2018 in Tokyo has set the foundations for a stronger security relationship between the two parties. As Brussels and Tokyo seek to capitalise on their SPA, maritime security in the Indian Ocean offers an invaluable opportunity to deepen their strategic ties. 

Why maritime security in the Indian Ocean? The maritime domain is the artery of global trade; the glue that holds together the rules-based international economic and political order. Its security is therefore of upmost importance to Japan and the EU, whose economies are highly dependent on external trade and whose politics are deeply invested in the preservation of a rules-based international order. And the Indian Ocean region becomes particularly important in the context of EU-Japan security cooperation, for it is where the EU’s “extended neighbourhood” meets Japan’s concept of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific (FOIP). More broadly, the Indian Ocean lies at the crossroads of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, Japan’s vision of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific, the grand strategies of India or the United States, and the EU’s own connectivity vision. As such, we see a number of visions of world order that center on the Indian Ocean region which are partly competing and partly complementary. Arguably, this is the one region where most relevant world powers meet more directly, and where the battle for the soul of the international system is being largely fought.
