Go East! Semaine nationale de la Roumanie, la Moldavie, la Bulgarie, la Géorgie, l'Arménie et le Bélarus

La table ronde se penchera sur le degré actuel de l'intégration régionale de nos pays respectifs, et en particulier: l'expérience de la Roumanie et Bulgarie dans l'Union européenne, d'une part, et celle du Bélarus et de l'Arménie dans l'Union eurasienne, d'autre part. Nous voulons analyser la mesure dans laquelle ce contexte géopolitique polarisant influe sur les politiques étrangères de Moldavie et la Géorgie.
