Solutions for Security Challenges in the EU

“It’s time to think about the EU’s core and surroundings together in a broad strategic vision for the EU as a whole. The problem is that deepening and widening have been out of sync for some time. The EU cannot deepen at 27, nor can it enlarge in its current state. Therefore, the idea of creating a core of Eurobond countries, which develop deeper political and economic bonds in a way that is subsequently attractive to the states of the outer circle, has some charm. Such a concerted round of ‘deepening’ must occur before enlargement can again be considered, including in the Balkans”, Ms. Ulrike Guérot, Senior Research Fellow and Head of the Berlin Office of the European Council on Foreign Relations wrote on ECFR’s blog after attendance at the first Belgrade Security Forum.
