Overview

The EU faces an unprecedented number of external challenges in an international environment that is becoming increasingly fragile, divided and competitive.

The review of the European Neighbourhood Policy provides an opportunity to rethink the EU’s approach in its near abroad. In this workshop, the speakers will examine the EU’s relationships with its Eastern neighbours, focusing in particular on whether Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreements signal a change in the EU’s approach towards political and economic reform in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova and on the EU’s response to the Ukraine crisis.

This workshop is part of a series on the future of European foreign policy organized in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (UK & Ireland Office).
