Professor Frank Schimmelfennig from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich) will be holding a guest lecture on the topic of “EU enlargement and differentiated integration” on Friday 18th January at 12.00 at the Faculty of Political Science of Zagreb University (seminar C, 2nd floor).
Frank Schimmelfennig is the Professor of European Politics and a member of the Centre for Comparative and International Studies at ETH Zurich. He is one of the most influential authors in the field, particularly in the theory of European integration, EU enlargement, and democratisation.
The focus of the lecture will be on the concept of differentiated integration, “multi-speed Europe”, or rather, Europe “a la carte”. The topic has for some time caused controversy in academia and expert narrative and most recently it has gained additional traction in the context of resolving some of the current challenges faced by the EU, including the perspective enlargement of the Union.
The lecture will be held in English and it is organised within the course of “EU Enlargement and Europeanisation of Croatia” as a part of the implementation of the Jean Monnet project EULEAD in cooperation with IRMO (Institute of Development and International Relations).
