ELF and LYMEC Seminar - The Future of the EU Neighbourhood Policy

What's the EU Neighborhood Policy? Where is it headed? This seminar will gather young liberals from across Europe to discuss the future of the EU Neighborhood Policy. By bringing a mix of EU and non-EU nationals together we hope to be able to provide different perspectives to the table. The aim of the event is to define the liberal priorities regarding the Neighborhood policy in order to provide a roadmap for future efforts. The deadline for applications is 7 October 16h15 CET. There is no participation fee. Accommodation (double rooms) and meals are included in the seminar. Spaces to this seminar are limited to 20. Please don’t book your travels before you have received a confirmation that your application was accepted. Also note that you have to be logged in to register.
