In this episode of the Liberal Europe Podcast, Leszek Jażdżewski (Fundacja Liberté!) welcomes Dr Eli Gateva, a Departmental Lecturer in European Union Politics at the Department of Politics and International Relations of the University of Oxford, a specialist in EU politics, East and Southeast Europe, EU enlargement and conditionality. They talk about democratic backsliding and why does it matter for the EU, the issue with Bulgaria and Romania, EU tools to address democratic backsliding among its members, and whether the EU is capable of using its tools more effectively to prevent it.
