This 6 November the whole world will be looking at the United States of America to see who will finally win the presidential race. Nouvelle Europe is a think tank dedicated to European affairs, but we think that the American elections matter for Europe too. This is why we have chosen to focus this month’s dossier on the connection between the two sides of the Atlantic.
This month, the French and English-speaking redactions of Nouvelle Europe team up to bring you a fresh look of the issues faced by some of the nations in the Balkans, most of which are now on the path to European integration.
Last June Nouvelle Europe followed in the tracks of the Orient-Express to Istanbul. From Europe to Turkey, from Paris to Istanbul, not only was the trip geographical, but it was also historical. To what extent have the successive EU enlargements reassessed European memory? Why speak of an “entangled history and memory between the EU and Turkey?” Nouvelle Europe co-organized a one-day conference with Professor Ayhan Kaya and his team from the European Institute of Bilgi University to discuss these two issues.
