Has the European Union Failed Eastern Europe?

Since 2009 the Eastern Partnership (EaP) has been the framework for defining the EU’s relations with its six closest neighbouring states at its eastern edge. Whilst there have been many advances in the form of visa-free regimes and new and far-reaching association and trade agreements, the reality on the ground across the region is fragile and fractious. Economic transitions are incomplete, democracy uncertain and societies lack resilience. With this in mind Collegium Civitas will host a Round Table discussion to consider the accomplishments, weaknesses and future of the Eastern Partnership.

  • Dr Hannes Meissner  (University of Applied Sciences, Vienna)
  • Dr Johannes Leitner (University of Applied Sciences, Vienna)
  • Dr Christian Nowak (University of Amsterdam)
  • Dr Oliver Hinkelbein (University of Bremen)
  • Dr Oxana Karnaukhova (Southern Federal University, Russia)

The Round Table is part of an EU-funded Jean Monnet Network ‘NEMESIS’, which is made up of the Southern Federal University, Collegium Civitas, the University of Applied Sciences in Vienna, the University of Amsterdam and the University of Bremen.
