The EU-Russia Relations in (the) Crisis?

Crisis Talks by the Leibniz Research Alliance "Crises in a globalised world" in Brussels

The relationship between the European Union and the Russian Federation has in recent years been shaped by multiple crises from the decline of the oil price to Putin’s increasingly authoritarian style of governing, from the Russian annexation of Crimea to Russia’s intervention in Syria. The Crisis Talk will shed light on the long-term development of the relation between the EU and Russia paying special attention to Ukraine and the EU’s external policy challenges resulting from the Brexit-vote. Do we have to prepare for further escalation? What are the policy options that would help to not only cope with the actual crisis but also to rebuild the relations with Russia?

 

Crisis Talks by the Leibniz Research Alliance “Crises in a globalised world”

In the European Union crises have always been an important driver for change and progress. Crisis situations allow the heterogeneity of European politics to be transcended through a common perception of a situation as critical and urgent and, therefore, exemplify the need for cooperation. Is the historical experience still valid that crises lead to deeper integration? The lunch lecture series Crisis Talks, organized by the Leibniz Research Alliance Crises in a Globalized World, systematically addresses how crises are perceived in the European Union, how we deal with them and what we have learned from former crises situations.
