This EPC Update covered two key issues for the EU's long-term future: the prospects for a new round of internal reforms and the future of EU enlargement and relations with neighbouring countries.

How might the 2024 European elections impact the reform debate? Will they increase the political pressure for change or make it more challenging to reach a consensus? Will key EU leaders be willing to invest political capital in persuading other governments to act? How will this affect the debate over enlargement? Will the war in Ukraine speed up the process, or will enlargement lose momentum again? How close are Ukraine and Moldova to meeting the EU's criteria for opening accession talks? How important is the EU accession of the Western Balkans, Ukraine, and Moldova for European security and stability? And will Türkiye's election results impact the country's accession process?

Speakers: Amanda Paul, Senior Policy Analyst, European Policy Centre; Fabian Zuleeg, Chief Executive, European Policy Centre; Janis Emmanouilidis, Director of Studies, European Policy Centre

Moderator: Jacki Davis, Senior Adviser, European Policy Centre
