Event details Event cancelled
A celebratory event to mark the 10th anniversary of the Central European states' accession to the European Union.
Ten European countries acceded to the EU on 1 May 2004: Poland, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Slovenia, Slovakia and Hungary. This was an historic achievement to which these countries had been striving since the change of their regimes.
We will mark this anniversary with a celebratory event in which representatives of some accession countries will reflect on the implications of EU membership for their nation, and their views of the future of the EU over the next decade.
After the presentations and panel discussion you're invited to join us for some drinks and nibbles.
This event will coincide with the opening of the European Union Studies Association Asia Pacific (EUSAAP) Conference.

- Mr Piotr Buszta, First Secretary of the Republic of Poland
- Ms Danute Levickis, Honorary Consul for Lithuania
