Project description

The proposed research will examine under which conditions the two competing regional projects – the Eastern Partnership developed by the EU, and the Eurasian Economic Union promoted by Russia – could evolve towards a state of peaceful coexistence and even cooperation in the post-Soviet space, in a world order shifting from the hegemony of the Western liberal order towards a multi-order system.
