Seminar "Post-soviet space between the EU and Russia. The state of the crisis: winding down or going global?" takes place on 18 and 19 March 2016 in the University of Tartu
The two-day seminar constitutes an opportunity to discuss the consequences of the Ukrainian crisis and its expansive destabilization potential in the region and globally. The event seeks to shed light on the evolution of the crisis and its impact on the nature of the EU-Russia relations at a time when few dare to predict how events will unfold in the future.
Eastern Platform-Platform Ukraine is a multi-disciplinary initiative aimed to analyse and better understand the Ukrainian crisis of 2014 by creating a unified resource and network of academics studying the post-socialist space which has the ambition to develop and grow as a forum and incubator to promote high quality research and knowledge sharing on the broader post-Soviet space.
The event is organized by the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies of the University of Tartu and the Centre for EU-Russia Studies (CEURUS) in cooperation with Eastern Platform-Platform Ukraine, a multidisciplinary project based at the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies (SSEES), University College London. The event is generously supported by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Estonia.
*Participation is free of charge and open to all those interested!
