Join the online course about the EU and the countries in the European Eastern neighbourhood!

IIRPS VU invites you to join an online course about the EU and the countries in the European Eastern neighbourhood, which is based on EU-STRAT project, that IIRPS VU is a partner of.  One of the available courses about external players in the Eastern Partnership: the United States, Russia and China,  is presented by IIRPS VU assoc. prof. dr. Margarita Šešelgytė.

EU-STRAT is an international research project that studies the relationship between the European Union and the countries in the European Eastern neighbourhood. The project started on 1 May 2016 and will continue until the end of April 2019.

The main ambition of EU-STRAT is to provide an inside-out analysis and strategic assessment of the links between the EU and Eastern Partnership countries.

EU-STRAT will address two main questions: First, why has the EU fallen short of creating peace, prosperity and stability in its Eastern neighbourhood? And second, what can be done to strengthen the EU’s transformative power in supporting political and economic change in the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries?

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 693382.
