Project description

The proposed PhD aims to examine the presence and the nature of competition of cultural
diplomacies between the European Union and Russia in the post-Soviet space. Drawing on studies
on regional leadership, it uses the tripartite conceptual framework of willingness, capacity and
acceptance to compare and assess the two actors’ cultural diplomacy efforts.
