The 2016 EURINT international conference series reaches an important milestone, its 5th edition. In this regard, this anniversary edition aims at drawing some of most relevant scholars, researchers, experts, civil society activists into a constructive exchange of views on the effectiveness of the Eastern Partnership in the light of the events in Ukraine. EURINT 2016 seeks to be one of the most visible and relevant international events in the academic year 2015-2016 dealing with the EaP region.The conceptual framework of EURINT 2016 is centred on the EU ‘actorness’ topic. The ongoing turmoil from Ukraine is seriously testing the EU’s capacity to effectively stand up to these regional challenges.
EURINT 2016 ties to fill a visible gap in the current debate and, thus, provide novel answers and raise awareness of the intrinsic and extrinsic challenges the EU faces when conceptualizing its strategy towards the eastern proximity.
The conference will be held at the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi, Romania, the oldest institution of higher learning in Romania. Iasi, “the city on the seven hills”, “just like Rome”, as an old local poem depicts, it will serve – especially in the month of May – as the perfect background and host for flourishing discussions for the 5th anniversary of EURINT.
PhD candidates, post-doc fellows, researchers, civil society activists, NGO leaders, consultants, policy advocates and many more.
There is participation fee of EUR 75. A limited number of international participants could benefit from financial support consisting of: participation fee waiver, accommodation, and travel expenses.
