Discussion The Nations in Transit 2016: transitioning beyond and away from the European project

2016-08-29 Institute News

For well over a decade “transition” in domestic and external dynamics in Central and Eastern Europe stood for transition to a governance based on values of peace, democracy, respect for human rights, justice, equality, rule of law and sustainability as defined by the EU founding treaties. Kremlin policies challenging the European solidarity have rightly been a key focus for policymaking in the Baltics. At the same time they were driving reforms towards a more “European” kind of governance as an antidote against undemocratic processes just across the Eastern border.

The Institute of International Relations and Political Science and Freedom House invite experts, politicians and students to join a discussion based on the findings of the Freedom House “Nations in Transit 2016” survey.

The discussion will take place at the Institute of International Relations and Political Science (IIRPS VU), 402 aud., Vokiečių str. 10, Vilnius, on 9 September at 9.30 – 11.00 am.
