The Ukrainian revolution and the subsequent serious security crisis unfolding at the EU's Eastern borders have dramatically altered assumptions and understandings that inform EU and Western policies in the region. Within a course of a few months, the already troubled EU-Russia partnership has all but unraveled, and EU and Russian involvement in Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus has assumed undeniable features of a geopolitical rivalry.
The aim of this event is to provide a forum for academic and policy-relevant analysis and discussion of the new political, economic and security realities in the EU's Eastern neighbourhood, and their implications for EU policy in the region.
Presenters and panelists include scholars and policy analysts from Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the USA.
The event is open to UT faculty and students as well as the general public. Registration is required. To register, please send an e-mail to Varje Kuut at varje.kuut [at] ut.ee by June 3 at the latest.
The event is organized by the Centre for EU-Russia Studies (CEURUS), University of Tartu.
