The call for papers on the subject “Countries of the European Neighborhood Policy East and South: particular issues and common solutions for sustainable development of Europe” is now open.
This contest is provided by Youth Club “Social Diplomacy” (Russia), jointly with The Autonomous non-commercial organization “Center For Socio-political Studies ‘Premier’” (Russia).
As you know the program of the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) is a new approach of the European Union to neighboring countries to strengthen relations between the EU and its neighbors and co-operation on the security and prosperity establishment, “the ring of friendly countries” on the borders of the European Union. ENP is also designed to give the EU neighboring countries a possibility of closer cooperation with the EU in politics, security, economy and culture. In this case 6 out of 16 countries in the program are included in the ENP (the Black Sea region particularly) Eastern Partnership, historically associated with socio-cultural processes taking place in Eastern Europe (Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine) and the Southern Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia). But the main idea is to create a joint research ground to explore and highlight existing issues and barriers in several macro-regions and platforms: ENP EAST, ENP SOUTH (e.g. Arab Spring), Eastern Partnership and the Black Sea region with active role of Turkey and Russia.
The competition aims:
To conduct a survey by the most active young researchers on proposed issues and region development with a primary focus on macro-ENP (within different dimensions East and South), and in connection with the Black Sea region processes to develop mutually shared scenarios of local problems solving and to facilitate a sustainable development of Europe.
