The European Union and Russia at the Crossroads: Quest for a New and More Qualitative Partnership

Association for International Affairs in cooperation with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung will organize an international workshop on "The European Union and Russia at the Crossroads: Quest for a New and More Qualitative Partnership". The workshop will launch the ambitious project of a series of international expert workshops in order to critically examine the current state of EU-Russia relations and help suggest possible ways to build a more robust and durable partnership between Brussels and Moscow.

The first workshop in the series intends to identify the main themes in EU-Russia relations in order to frame the subsequent deliberation as it will take place over the course of the following international workshops. During a half-day workshop, government officials, experts and representatives of business community both from Russia and the EU will have a chance to hear from and speak to the invited speakers. The workshop will start with the key-note speakers (up to six speakers) deliver their opening presentations followed by a discussion in a round-table setting.
