How the EU can Enlarge

Improving global governance
Aug 11, 2023 | Politico

Presently none of the eastern European trio - Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia – are NATO members and, in light of Russia’s threat, there is now an existential security reason to effect EU enlargement.  Another major enlargement from its current 27 to 35 or 36 member countries in the next decade is unlikely, suggests Nathalie Tocci in her article for Politico. Such an approach could lead to the sidelining of urgent reform priorities and a rules-based process. In preparation for Ukraine’s entry, the EU would need to radically revise its common agricultural and cohesion policies and decide how to include Kyiv in the next Multiannual Financial Framework beginning in 2028.;mc_eid=2af4a6f2fc
