Panel discussion: The EU and the Danube Region: Political and Economic Challenges

4 June 2013

An event on 5 June will see an expert panel discuss the implications of the EU's Danube Strategy.

Clock at UCL

From its source in the German Black Forest to its delta on the borders of Romania, Moldova and Ukraine, the Danube links ten countries, seven of which are EU members. This river shapes a region of remarkable cultural diversity, but also of great socio-economic inequalities, a region with a turbulent past that is now at the forefront of European enlargement.

In 2010, during the Hungarian Presidency of the EU, the European Commission endorsed the Danube Strategy, aiming to address the economic, social and environmental problems and opportunities of the Danubian region. This panel discussion brings together experts on the politics and economics of the region to assess the challenges that EU policy faces here. 


Erin Saltman

PhD candidate (SSEES) whose research focuses on the contemporary process of political socialisation among young people in Hungary.


Oleg Levitin

Senior Political Counsellor at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Previously Head of Office at the United Nations.

Dr Eric Gordy

Senior Lecturer in South East European Politics (UCL - SSEES) with a research focus on the politics and culture of the contemporary Balkans. Author of The Culture of Power in Serbia (1999) and forthcoming book Post-war Guilt and Responsibility: Serbia and the Future of International Justice.

Edina Csányi

Senior expert, seconded from the European Investment Bank to the Budapest Danube Contact Point.

Oliver Geidt

Senior Analyst at the AEGIS Advisory. Primary risk analysis focus on Central and Eastern Europe. Previous SSEES Master's student.

The event, which is open to all and forms part of the UCL Global Citizenship Programme, will take place on Wednesday 5 June from 5pm-7pm in G06 Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre, Roberts Building. The debate will be followed by a wine reception. Booking is not necessary.
