Event/Product information

What can you expect?
The 5th anniversary edition of EURINT will mark an important milestone for our conference series and focus on the latest political, economic and security developments from the Eastern Partnership area and the broader eastern neighbourhood region. The 2016 conference is co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme.

 What about the topic?

EURINT 2016 will be 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. It is perhaps not surprising that in some circles the EU’s approach towards the EaP region is perceived today as being not entirely comprehensive. The EU seems not fully capable of delivering meaningful results which could negatively impact, on the long-run, the EU’s credentials in the region. Hence, we believe time is ripe for a detailed reconsideration of the EU’s neighbourhood instruments (particularly the EaP).

Who will take part in our academic event?
During the two consecutive days an exciting academic programme featuring renowned international experts and keynote lectures will be offered to our wide pool of participants: PhD candidates, post-doc fellows, researchers, civil society activists, NGO representatives, consultants, policy advocates and many more.

 What kind of opportunities does this conference offer?
EURINT 2016 will share the latest academic research results, excellent networking opportunities, possibilities to create links for future cooperation between in the field of academic (preparing potential research projects, establishing common publishing goals, etc.). Moreover, a limited number of international participants could benefit from financial support.

What about social events?
The conference will be held at the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi, Romania, the oldest institution of higher learning in Romania. EURINT 2016 will be a pleasant and useful experience both for its academic quality and informal social networking. You are warmly welcome to explore the historical centre of Iasi, its intense cultural life and events, and enjoy the beautiful May weather.
