Dr Andriy TYUSHKA's article about dilemmas and challenges of the Eastern Partnership

Dr Andriy TYUSHKA, Senior Research Fellow in the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair at the College of Europe in Natolin, has just published a journal article on enduring dilemmas of, and future challenges for, the EU’s Eastern Partnership policy titled Towards a Happy Twentieth Anniversary? Future Thinking on the Eastern Partnership’s 3Ds: Dilemmas, Design and Deliverables’.

As the European Union’s flagship policy initiative towards its Eastern European neighborhood is currently undergoing auditing and revision, this article seeks to cast a look back at how the Eastern Partnership has functioned over the past decade – and to think forward to its future(s) with regard to design and deliverables in face of the enduring and imminent policy dilemmas in this highly contested region.

This article draws on a speech delivered by Dr TYUSHKA in the opening panel of the international conference on the EaP’s tenth anniversary and post-2020 development scenarios, organized by the Slovak Foreign Policy Association in cooperation with the University of Prešov and other partners in Prešov on 21-23 October 2019.
