The European Union (EU) is not one without flaws, that much is accepted. The high cost of an EU membership, overcrowding in developed countries due to immigration, or a single currency that restricts independent monetary policy in poorer member states, are just some of the problems the EU face. But amidst these issues, it is easy to overlook the most remarkable and arguably the most important achievement by the EU – its ability to achieve peace.
In partnership with the European Neighbourhood Council (ENC) and the Warwick Economics Summit (WES), ENC urges everyone to continue championing EU’s shared value of democracy, rule of law and justice in this era of unprecedented challenges. We explore their thoughts on the drivers of peace, as well as on EU-Turkey Relations and the steps needed to move forward.
