"Joining the Club: The Central European Accession Countries in the Referendum-Period"

Workshop organised by Eva Karadi, Eötvös Lóránd University of Sciences (ELTE) and European Cultural Foundation Budapest. Supported by the European Cultural Foundation and Ringier Publishing House
28-29 April 2003

Two days of round-table discussion in three sessions with a public debate with the participation of prominent European opinion leaders: Editors in chief of leading daily newspapers from the EU member candidate Central European countries; former ministers for foreign affairs from the region; political analysts and experts for Central-Eastern Europe from EU member states; prominent authors from non-member states; members of the network; former fellows of Collegium Budapest; and participants of the Focus Group "Political Psychology of Post-Communism".

An initiative of the Hungarian NC of the European Cultural Foundation in cooperation with Collegium Budapest, is meant to become part of a series of debates and workshops of ECF on the cultural dimensions of the European enlargement process, titled "Enlargement of Minds". Just like in the other projects under this umbrella in the debates of the symposium "Joining the club: the Central European access countries in the referendum-period" the cultural impact of the enlargement process will be discussed from different perspectives: from that of the EU-member and candidate countries, as well as the perspectives of the future neighboring countries to the East or South of the EU.
In "Joining the club: the Central European access countries in the referendum period" the participants will reflect on the cultural components of the attitudes towards the accession expressed in the debates before the referendum: institutional optimism and cultural pessimism, fears and hopes, Euro-enthusiasm and Euro-skepticism.
