The Baltic-Nordic EU Conversations 2023: The Future of the EU
The Latvian Institute of International Affairs (LIIA), in cooperation with the European Commission's Representation in Latvia and the Parliament of the Republic of Latvia, arranged the annual high-level international conference: "The Baltic-Nordic EU Conversations 2023: More United than Ever?". As a part of the conference, the conversation on the EU’s Future was hosted by the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) and was held online.
After several rounds of deepening and widening its integration, the European Union has changed enormously. The direction of further changes is still being discussed. The prospect of further enlargement, plus the policy challenges facing the Union, make the question increasingly urgent. The aim of this conversation was to outline how the membership applications of Ukraine and other countries may reshape the future of the EU itself.
