In this episode Aga sits down with Pavel Havlíček, a Research Fellow at the Prague-based Association for International Affairs (AMO) and expert on Eastern Europe, to discuss the priorities of the recently inaugurated Czech presidency of the Council of the European Union and how these will be impacted by the historic decision to grant Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova EU candidate status. Aga and Pavel also talk about Czechia’s involvement in the development of the Eastern Partnership and ponder on the possible future scenarios for the initiative, now that two of its members have become part of the EU’s enlargement policy.
