The New Europe Center has the honor to invite you to the public discussion “The Eastern Partnership and Ukraine: looking back, thinking ahead”, organized in partnership with the European Union Institute for Security Studies.
The review of the Eastern Partnership initiative requires an exercise of collective thinking on how to make the EaP more relevant and efficient for the region. Over the last 10 years of existence, Eastern Partnership proved to be successful and helped EaP states in delivering more and better reforms.
At the same time, EaP has been vulnerable in addressing certain issues, such as the security one. All in one, the Eastern Partnership needs to be reformed so it responds to the current challenges in the region.
The event will be centered around two main ideas:
- First, it will provide an assessment of the EaP implementation and opportunities based on the EUISS paper “The Eastern Partnership A Decade On: Looking back, thinking ahead”.
- Second, a public discussion will take place, focusing on reform of the Eastern Partnership Initiative.
Speakers of the event:
- Alyona Getmanchuk, Director, New Europe Center
- Leo Litra, Senior Research Fellow, New Europe Center
- Kateryna Zarembo, Associated expert, New Europe Center
- Stanislav Secrieru, Senior Analyst at the European Union Institute for Security Studies
- Maryna Mykhailenko, Director of the European Union and NATO Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine
- Hans-Jürgen Heimsoeth, Special Representative for the Eastern Partnership at the German Foreign Office
- Fredrik Wesslau, Deputy Head of European Union Assistance Mission to Ukraine
The event will take place at Hyatt Regency (Ally Tarasovoi St, 5) on February 19, 2020, from 10:30 to 12:30 (registration begins at 10:00).
