EU’s enlargement to the East is considered one of the most impressive
achievements of the European integration process. The accession of former
socialistic countries strengthened the position of the EU as a “normative
power”, while at the same time it forced the EU to face challenges in the
new neighbourhood (which now includes Russia). The lecture presents an
overview the foundations of EU’s policy towards the so-called New Eastern
Europe and touches on the Ukrainian crisis as a testing moment for the EU’s
eastern policy.
