On November 12, 2007, Cornell's Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies hosted a debate scheduled to feature Laure Delcour, senior research fellow at the Institut des Relations Internationales et Stratégiques in Paris, and Soner Cagaptay, director of the Turkish Research Program at the Washington Institute for Near Eastern Policy, to discuss the European Eunion enlargement and the Turkish accession. The debate was first in the Einaudi Center's Critical Debates in Foreign Policy Series. Professor Cagaptay, however, was unable to attend, so the audience at the Einaudi Center became participants, offering their questions and observations for a uniquely improvised debate with Professor Delcour.

Building on the success of its Foreign Policy Distinguished Speaker Series, the Critical Debates in Foreign Policy Series is meant to bring together experts in the field of international studies for scholarly debate around current global issues.
