Policy Perspectives for European Integration

The wiiw seminar series ‘Policy Perspectives for European Integration’ is the continuation of three earlier wiiw seminar series: ‘Crisis management in Central, East and Southeast Europe: What is to be done?’; ‘Policy options for the post-crisis economy in Central, East and Southeast Europe’; and ‘EU in Crisis’.

In this series, our emphasis is on issues that affect the future of the European Union: we look at the policy perspectives which may emerge after the crisis and affect the EU and its neighbourhood. Reforms of the EMU, the closer fiscal and economic cooperation of the Member States, bail-out schemes, solutions to the prevailing debt problems in the Southern Rim of the Union, the controversial relations between the EU and Russia affecting border countries and, furthermore, migration policy challenges within the EU and with neighbouring regions are topics we expect to remain of utmost importance in this and the coming years. Policies impacting on the further integration of the new Member States and future enlargements of the EU will remain an integral part of the discourse in this seminar series as well.
