Diverse activiteiten - EPRS
Event on 23 January 2020

In his new book, 'This is not Propaganda', Peter Pomerantsev, author of the best-selling ‘Nothing is True and Everything is Possible’, takes the reader to the front-line of the new ‘disinformation wars’. In a book which is ‘part reportage, part intellectual adventure’, Pomerantsev meets with ‘Twitter revolutionaries, pop-up populists, behavioural-change salesmen, Jihadi fan-boys, identitarians, truth cops’, and many more involved in these battles. […]

His research took him, among other places, to the Philippines, Mexico City, Russia, Ukraine and Serbia. 'This is not Propaganda' explores how we might 'reimagine our politics and ourselves' in a time where truth is under threat. In this latest EPRS Book Talk, Peter Pomerantsev - who has published in the Financial Times, London Review of Books, The New Yorker, WSJ, Foreign Policy, Newsweek and Le Monde diplomatique, and also worked as a consultant for the EU and World Bank - will discuss his new book with Naja Bentzen, Policy Analyst in the Members' Research Service of EPRS.

28-01-2020 13:30 - Western Balkans: A rocky road to enlargement

Diverse activiteiten - EPRS
EPRS event on 28 January 2020

Despite a reaffirmed EU commitment to enlargement, Member States' positions diverge on the speed and schedule of the process. However, maintaining a credible perspective on future accession is crucial for the Western Balkans countries, as well as for the European Union. In a resolution adopted on 24 October 2019, the European Parliament expressed deep disappointment over the failure to agree on opening EU accession talks with Albania and North Macedonia. […]

Meer details

A failure to deliver on EU commitments could increase regional instability and frustration, both sources of nationalist policies, boosting the influence of third countries. Ahead of the Zagreb Western Balkans Summit, policy-makers and experts will discuss the state of play of enlargement policy, followed by an opportunity for questions and comments from the audience.
