EU Eastern Policy: shaping relations with Russia and Ukraine
3. november. 2015 @ 12:00 am
The aim of the conference is to discuss EU policy towards Eastern Europe with focus on topical issues that frame its current agenda with Russia and Ukraine. The one-day conference will, first, examine prospects for further development of the EU sanctions policy towards Russia in light of the implementation of the Minsk agreements and investigation of shooting of the Malaysian aircraft MH17; second, evaluate situation in Ukraine with focus on reform progress and domestic political (un)stability; and finally, analyse potential for cooperation between the EU members states in Central and South Eastern Europe and Ukraine in security of natural gas supply against Russia’s moves in her export policy. The conference discussion will also aim to reflect upon a revised European Neighbourhood Policy that will be proposed by the European Commission in autumn 2015, and to contribute to the preparation of the EU global strategy for foreign and security policy recently started by the European External Action Service.
