We are overjoyed to have finished the second module, “Enlargement as a Policy to Promote Peace and Security in Europe“. Promoting awareness of the latter is especially important, as it is unquestionably one of the most delicate parts of this historic moment for Europe.

Dr. Andrea Cascone’s seminar on May 6, 2024, which explored the intricate process of the Balkan countries’ ongoing accession, and Prof. Ivana Bodrožić’s seminar on May 9, 2024, which helped participants better understand the main security-related issues – particularly those pertaining to the prosecution of transnational crimes – and candidate states’ adaptation to the Union acquis, enhanced this module.

Furthermore, our students took part in a workshop where they were asked to provide their opinions on how the EU promotes peace and security. This is an important component of the EUVALWEB Jean Monnet Chair since it gives participants the freedom to openly share their opinions regarding the questions that will be discussed during our second final conference at Unisa’s Department of Legal Sciences.
