IIRPS and partners won Horizon 2020 Funding

2015-11-19 Institute News

Institute of International Relations and Political Science together with partners won Horizon 2020  funding for the project „The EU and Eastern Partnership Countries: An Inside-Out Analysis and Strategic Assessment“. The main goal of the project is to investigate under what conditions the EU’s strategies and instruments for  its Eastern neighbours can be more effective. The findings will be submitted to the European Commission.

Ten years after its inception, the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has fallen short of accomplishing its mission. The war in Ukraine and the rising tensions with Russia have made a re-assessment of the ENP both more urgent and more challenging. This project will address two questions: first, why has the EU fallen short of creating peace, prosperity and stability in its Eastern neighbourhood? Second, what can be done to strengthen the EU’s transformative power in supporting political and economic change in the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries?

“Encounter with a Lost Land” (62 min.), author Maryse Gargour. The film was made in Lebanon and France in 2013.

Jaffa, a Mediterranean port and one of the oldest cities in the world, is a place where people of many cultures and religions lived together. Through an artful montage of personal letters, diplomatic archives, consular correspondence, audio-visual footage, newspapers and interviews with the children of French diplomats and doctors who lived in Jaffa, filmmaker Maryse Gargour takes us on an encounter with a lost land – Palestine from 1928 to 1952. Archival materials and first-hand testimonies paint a picture of life in Jaffa at a fateful time in the history of the country.

Movie is in French with English subtitles. 

Screening of a movie will take place on Monday, 28 November at 6 pm. at Institute of International Relations and Political Science at Vilnius University, Vokiečių str. 10, Conference Room 402.
