We kick things of with a video message from Jaap de Zwaan, TEPSA's Secretary-General, and Frank Schimmelfennig, @IEP_Berlin's Chairman of the Academic Advisory Board

#PPCBerlin is our first ever virtual PPC because of #COVID19, which is why our cooperation with @IEP_Berlin has been valuable in taking this unexpected context into account 💪

"The current European priorities are excellently reflected in our #PPCBerlin programme"

Follow along here⤵️

Our final session of the day consists of THREE parallel Roundtables:

1⃣Migration and Asylum
2⃣Enlargement and neighbourhood Policy
3⃣European Green Deal

The first, on the topic of Migration and Asylum, is chaired by @vimeissner from @IEP_Berlin, and features contributions from @BMI_Bund, TEPSA, @Clingendaelorg, and @VUBrussel 💪

The second, on the topic of Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy, is chaired by @IEP_Berlin Director @Boettger_IEP, featuring statements from expert panellists from @Univerzitet_CG, @GermanyDiplo, @rielcano, @PMCGofficial, and @PA3yMKOB

The third and final countable of DAY 01 is on the topic of the European Green Deal is hosted by @JohannesPollak from @IEP_Berlin & @WebsterVienna (also the co-editor of the TEPSA book!), and features contributions from @FU_Berlin, @Stiftung2Grad, @bmu, and @EuropeanUni

Our European Green Deal panel covered lots of ground, featuring voices from across civil society:

Christian Calliness from @FU_Berlin
@SabineNallinger from @Stiftung2Grad
@sachkarsten from @bmu
@gaby_um from @EuropeanUni

Christian Calliness from @FU_Berlin highlighted the opportunities presented by the 8th Environmental Action Programme, "set to be implemented during #EU2020DE, should act as a monitoring framework for the implementation of the European #GreenDeal"

The sentiment was echoed by @sachkarsten from @bmu, who emphasised the need for monitoring mechanisms: "It is is important to have these in any green law in the EU: without these, it will be very difficult to achieve our aims"

.@SabineNallinger from @Stiftung2Grad brought in valuable insights from the private sector: "they see the #COVID19 recovery period as an opportunity to emerge from the crisis more sustainable and more internationally competitive in a growing green market"

Finally, @gaby_um from @EuropeanUni concluded: "EU #ClimateAction is essential in the Green Deal and the Recovery Plan: we are talking about the global common good"

"We are saving our livelihood on earth. We have an obligation to engage in a future-oriented policy"

@GermanyintheEU @GermanyDiplo @bmu @parleu2020de @IEP_Berlin
In the Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy panel, we had five exciting contributions:

➡️Danijela Jaćimović from @Univerzitet_CG
➡️Edgar Gansen from @GermanyDiplo
➡️@ilketoygur from @rielcano
➡️@khishtovani from @PMCGofficial
➡️Yuriy Yakymenko from @PA3yMKOB

Danijela Jaćimović from @Univerzitet_CG highlighted the #COVID19 recession in the Western Balkans:

"Managing the economic and social impacts of the crisis will be the main priority of the governments in the #WesternBalkans"

Edgar Gansen from @GermanyDiplo demonstrated the EU's interest in ensuring stability in its immediate neighbourhood:

"EU credibility requires clear criteria, strict conditionality, and a clear perspective on EU membership. Enlargement is the best way of ensuring this"

.@ilketoygur from @rielcano brought in questions of #Turkish accession, where "membership talks are dysfunctional and a clear prospect is lacking [...] enlargement policy nevertheless remains the EU's most effective foreign policy tool"

.@khishtovani from @PMCGofficial described the absolute necessity for further integration of the EU with Georgia:

"Only with active support from the EU can Georgians count on having fair Parliamentary elections this autumn"

Yuriy Yakymenko from @PA3yMKOB outlines Ukraine's goals in relations with the EU: "the ENP is for Ukraine a process with a definite goal: EU membership, and solidarity from Europe in regards to the territorial integrity of Ukraine is crucial"

For more on what #EU2020DE should be doing in foreign policy during their presidency, check our @NHelwig's contribution to TEPSA's Video Recommendations to the German Presidency, which highlighted in particular the need for a "circle of friends"

Our afternoon roundtable on #Migration and #Asylum Policy at #PPCBerlin featured a great lineup of expert contributors:

Stephan Mayer from @BMI_Bund
Jaap de Zwaan, TEPSA's Secretary-General
@adriaanschout from @Clingendaelorg
Florian Trauner from @VUBrussel

"Member States are not able to delivery properly on goals surrounding migration and asylum policy, which means that we need to find solutions reflecting the collective responsibility of all the Member States"

Jaap de Zwaan calls for increased cooperation on this field

"The EU gives importance to the design of subsidiarity-based systems in all the packages #EU2020DE is negotiating. They need to know how to build such a system to achieve their aims"

@adriaanschout's fascinating contribution to the Migration and Asylum panel at #PPCBerlin

This marks the end of the first day of #PPCBerlin but you can still #Zoom in TOMORROW for Day 02 - starting at 09:30 CET!
