  • Report on complementary and alternative modes of engagement with the Eastern Partnership countries
    Anul: 2018 Autor: Matthew Frear, Klaudijus Maniokas, Laurynas Jonavičius and Ion Tabarta
    Originally envisaged as the ‘enlargement-lite’ project within the wider ENP (Popescu and Wilson 2009), the EaP experienced an idealistic period, which was dominated by the perception of the EaP as an instrument to Europeanize partners in the east without giving them the membership perspective. However, due to the growing assertiveness of Russia and the enlargement fatigue inside the EU, the EaP has moved towards a much more pragmatic policy with an emphasis on ‘common interest’ rather than ‘common values’ (Korosteleva 2017). Following the ENP review, the one-size-fits-all approach has been adjusted to changing realities to include the principles of more-for-more and diversification (European Commission 2017a).
  • Report on the findings of survey experiments assessing the effectiveness of the EU’s communications

    he underlying theoretical assumption of our study is that individual preferences for international cooperation are not set in stone, but variable and to some extent open to influence through persuasion or manipulation. Preferences are often shaped in an incomplete information situation. Information and communication can increase or decrease the salience of a particular factor and bring to the fore specific (political) issues in one’s thinking. In communication, the framing of a policy issue—by politicians or media—is a well-known factor influencing both policy decisions and public opinion (Boräng et al. 2014; Entman 1991, 1993).
  • Report on policy briefings in the EaP countries
    Anul: 2017 Autor: Ildar Gazizullin, Igor Munteanu, Ina Ramasheuskaya
    This report outlines the major discussions, findings, and insights generated by EU-STRAT’s first series of policy briefings. The briefings were conducted in November 2016 in the capital cities of three of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries: Moldova, Ukraine, and Belarus. EU-STRAT partners in each of these capital cities—the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) in Chișinău, the Ukrainian Institute for Public Policy (UIPP) in Kyiv and The School of Young Managers in Public Administration (SYMPA) in Minsk—hosted the respective briefings. The briefings were attended by local media, academics, think tank representatives, and policy experts, as well as representatives of the European Union (EU) and national governments.

  • Report on complementary and alternative modes of engagement with the Eastern Partnership countries
    Anul: 2018 Autor: Matthew Frear, Klaudijus Maniokas, Laurynas Jonavičius and Ion Tabarta
    This report complements the earlier work presented in the EU-STRAT Working Paper Series analysing European Union (EU) engagement in the Eastern neighbourhood. These papers have focused primarily on studying interaction, integration, and interdependencies between the EU and the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries within the framework of Association Agreements (AA), which include Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas (DCFTAs) (Dragneva et al. 2018; Wolczuk et al. 2017).
  • How Bilateral, Regional and International Regimes Shape the Extent, Significance and Nature of Interdependencies
    Anul: 2018 Autor: Rilka Dragneva, Laure Delcour, Marta Jaroszewicz, Szymon Kardaś, and Carolina Ungureanu
    In discussing relations between post-Soviet countries, interdependence, and dependence on Russia in particular, is often portrayed as a natural inevitability. What this ignores, however, is that interdependence can be created and perpetuated by policy itself. It is the outcome of a political game where a range of interests is involved, resulting in a set of governance arrangements or regimes. Understanding this dynamic has important implications for the effectiveness of the European Union’s engagement in the region.

  • A New Turn or More of the Same? A Structured Analysis of Recent Developments in Russian Foreign Policy Discourse
    Anul: 2017 Autor: Matthew Frear, Honorata Mazepus
    Russia and the European Union (EU) pursue active policies in their shared neighbourhood. The official Russian foreign policy discourses that we analyse here provide insights into the most important foreign policy ideas that Russia seeks to promote. They show how Russia perceives its role in the region and the world, as well as how it wants to develop its relations with neighbours. Building on previous studies identifying the main discourses in Russian foreign policy, this paper offers a new, comprehensive analysis of recent Foreign Policy Concepts and the annual Presidential Addresses to the Federal Assembly during President Vladimir Putin’s third term.
  • A look at science policies and international cooperation in the Eastern Neighbourhood
    Anul: 2017 Autor: EU-STRAT
    Vacation season may be coming to a close, but EU-STRAT has already been in full swing the last moths. Our study of the links between the EU and Eastern Partnership countries has taken us all over the continent, in search of answers to the following questions: First why has the EU fallen short of creating peace, prosperity and stability in the Eastern Neighbourhood? And second, what can be done to strengthen the EU transformative power in supporting political and economic change in the six EaP countries?
  • The Elements of Russia’s Soft Power: Channels, Tools, and Actors Promoting Russian Influence in the Eastern Partnership Countries
    Anul: 2017 Autor: EU-STRAT
    Soft power can be exerted by a variety of actors using different channels and tools. This paper focuses on actors and channels transmitting Russian messages and discourses in the Eastern Partnership countries. It contributes to enhancing our understanding of Russian influences in the region in two ways. First, it maps the network of influential actors who have the potential to transmit Russian messages and target various audiences.
  • The EU’s communication with Eastern Partnership countries
    Anul: 2017 Autor: EU-STRAT
    Since the Eastern Partnership (EaP) was launched in 2009, the European Union (EU) has highlighted three major objectives of the initiative: stability, security, and prosperity. These catch words have laid the foundation for activities in the EaP framework and the EU has used a number of instruments to achieve them, such as supporting structural reforms, deepening economic cooperation, and reaching out to the public. But are these goals also reflected in the EU’s communication with EaP countries? Do political and societal actors on the ground receive these messages? While empirical developments cast doubt on the consistency of both the sending and receiving end, there is little systematic knowledge on how the EU communicates with EaP countries and how these messages are received; a research gap that EU-STRAT seeks to close.
